In The Vineyard

The grapes for this wine was sourced from Paarl.

About The Harvest
The grapes were harvested by hand earlier this year into small 20kg cases. The grapes were then transported in the cool of the morning to the Hoopenburg cellar.
In The Cellar
The grapes were picked at 23.50 balling and hand-tipped directly into the press without any crushing or de-stemming. Pressing of the grapes then took place for three hours, with the juice being naturally settled overnight. Fermentation took three weeks to finish. The wine was then immediately racked and left for a couple of months to age on the fine lees and bottled with a light filtration.
