In the Vineyard: The grapes for this wine have been harvested from a number of vineyards in Swartland and Paarl.

In the cellar: Pinotage was harvested over a three – week period starting late January 2017. Most of the grapes were destalked and fermented in tanks with French and American oak staves. Malolactic was completed on staves which we removed from the wine in April 2017. Approximately 15% of the wine was fermented in small open fermenters and hand-punched before being pressed off prior to full dryness into small older French and American oak barrels. We blended 15% of 2018 Pinotage into the 2017 vintage before bottling.
