Wine Info
Description

The grapes are from our Estate vineyards on the upper slopes of Paarl mountain, grown on decomposed granite soils with supplementary drip irrigation. The vineyards are trellised and undergo summer canopy management practices such as suckering and tipping to ensure sufficient sunlight penetrates the canopy. The grapes were picked by hand very early in the morning, which allowed for the grapes to be delivered cold to the cellar, where they were destalked and gently pressed. The free-run juice settled for two days before the clear juice was racked off and cold fermented in tank. On completion of fermentation, the wine was left on fine lees before blending and bottling.
