  • Appealing aromas of blackberry and raspberry lead to a smooth, rich palate with polished and integrated tannins enveloping cherry notes. Beautifully integrated oak delivers delicate spicy notes through to a long, elegant finish.

The grapes were hand-harvested and left to cool overnight in cold rooms. A combination of crushed fruit and whole bunch fermentation produced greater flavour complexity. The grapes were vinified with selected yeast at 26°C. A combination of pump overs and punch downs were used to achieve the desired levels of colour, flavour and fine tannin extraction. The fermenting must spend 15 days on the skins before being gently pressed. The malolactic conversion occurred in a tank before the wine was matured in French oak barrels for 14 months, of 3rd and 4th fill.

Winery

The grapes are grown in the Cape Agulhas wine region, where the sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean create a cool microclimate. The winds blow directly off the ocean in both a south-easterly and south-westerly direction, providing consistent freshness throughout the summer, and as a result, temperatures seldom reach above 30°C. This cool climate creates a slow ripening period, allowing the grapes to build flavour complexity and produce naturally balanced wines. The diversity of soil types creates wines with great dimension and structure. A triple-wire vertical shoot system is used for trellising, which helps to provide optimum sunlight and airflow and protects the vines and shoots against the wind. Nature-friendly chemical sprays and copper treatments are used if necessary. Satellite technology helps to determine optimal ripening.
