In The Vineyard

The deep, red Tukulu soils of Papkuilsfontein situated just 25km from the sea, have an excellent capacity to retain water. The cooling Atlantic Ocean breezes and a protective range of hillocks, create an optimal micro climate for excellent growing conditions and ripening of the grapes. The farm also has an above-average rainfall of just under 570 mm for the West Coast.

About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested by hand at 23.5° to 24.7° Balling at the end of January and early February.
The bush vines harvested for this wine were planted in 1994 and yielded around 5 tons/ha.

In The Cellar

The juice was fermented in temperature-­?controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine was racked of its gross lees and then stabilised and bottled.
