The hand-picked and hand-sorted grapes were destemmed and fermented with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures, which peaked at 27˚C. The skins were punched down by hand and the wine then spent a further three weeks on the skins for optimal extraction of colour and flavour. The free-run juice was gently pressed into first and second-fill French oak barrels. Malolactic conversion occurred naturally, after which the wine was racked. The wine was matured for a period of 18 months in the same barrels. Tastings took place to ensure only the best barrels were selected.

Winery

The Lomond estate is surrounded by indigenous flora known as Fynbos. This single vineyard wine is named after a vulnerable listed species endemic to the Agulhas Region, Leucadendron Coniferum or the Dune Conebush. The vines are planted in north-west facing blocks on the lower reaches of the farm within view of the sea, in sandy, gravelly and highly weathered soils with a clay substructure. Altitudes of the wine blocks vary, with some blocks situated at around 50 metres above sea level, while others are located around 100 metres above sea level, with uninterrupted exposure to the ocean breeze. Prevailing winds blow directly off the ocean in both a south easterly and south westerly direction, providing consistent coolness throughout the summer months, with temperatures seldom reaching above 30°C. This cool microclimate creates a slow ripening period allowing the grapes to build flavour complexity and to produce naturally balanced wines.
