Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist) The grapes were sourced from mainly trellised vineyards in Stellenbosch Kloof, Helderberg and Devon Valley. Mostly south-west facing, they derive the maximum benefit from cooling maritime breezes that contribute to slow ripening of the grapes and concentrated fruit flavours.
Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Bonny van Niekerk (Winemaker) The grapes were harvested by hand in March at 24° to 25° Balling, when fruit and tannins were fully ripened but the berries and skins were still firm. The different vineyards blocks were separately vinified. Each tank was cold-soaked for five to seven days. Fermentation on the skins took place for 10 to 12 days at 26°C. The juice was then was racked off the skins and the skins pressed. The pressed juice was returned proportionally to add complexity to the wine. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in new-fill French and American oak barrels for 14 months.
