In The Vineyard

The grapes for this wine come from a section of vineyards on our Golden Tri-angle farm on the slopes of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch.


About The Harvest

Grapes are picked at optimum ripeness of 23 - 25° Balling.


In The Cellar

Grapes were kept on the skin for cold maceration for at least 3 days. This also allows some natural fermen-tation to take place. The juice is then inoculated with a homemade brew of yeasts including three different commercial strains.

It is fermented in open stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 24 – 28°C and kept on its skins for 4-7 days with regular pump overs and punch downs. After fermentation, the free run juice is drained and the skins are gen-tly pressed. It finishes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Aged for 8 months in 3rd and 4fh fill French oak.
