The grapes for this wine are a blend from a bush vine vineyard situated Darling. And trellised vineyards in Paarl. The Darling vineyard is approximately 300m above sea level on the west-facing hills outside Darling and was planted on Richter 99 rootstock in 2001 and is dryland farmed. The soil in this vineyard is decomposed granite, which differentiates it from the surrounding vineyards (which are composed mainly of clayheavy oakleaf soils). The Paarl vineyards have all been planted in decomposed granite soils and are irrigated. Both sites deliver expressive fruit from this variety.
