About The Harvest
The origin of these grapes stems from the Stellenbosch region. Harvesting took place by hand at 22.5°balling in the cool of the morning.
In The Cellar
Without crushing or destemming, three hour long pressing took place, followed by fermentation for three weeks in stainless steel tanks. The wine was racked and allowed to age for a few months on the fine lees, whereafter light filtration preceded bottling.
Additional Information
Beauty is often found in the smallest of things, such as a single perfect berry. Combining this with the many aspects of fine wine-making, our wines are created resulting in many accolades, but still remaining accessible for sharing with family and friends. We invite you to partake in this experience.
