Ageing: It is perfect to enjoy now or for (at least) another 5 – 6 years.

In the Vineyard: South-facing, slightly sloped vineyard at Tanagra (McGregor) on rocky Karoo soil and surrounded by Karoo fynbos and veld

In the cellar: Early morning hand selected harvest to optimize grape quality at 24.5 ballings. Hand-sorting of grapes before destemming. Whole berries are pumped into open top fermenter (without any green stems) and macerated there for about 4 days on the skins, allowing cooled grapes to extract colour and phenolic compounds prior to primary fermentation. Fermentation through natural (wild) yeast as soon as grapes reach room temperature. Punching down of fermenting must 3 times a day until fermentation is completed. Fermentation on the skins until about zero ballings. Gentle pressing of skins and malolactic fermentation in 225 litre neutral French oak casks for 14 months. Done with minimal interference through vinification, sediment may occur.
