In The Vineyard

Organically produced on a 3-wire trellised vineyard system with drip irrigation. The soil is sustainably managed with different cover crops, vetches and organic mulching to stimulate healthy soil microbial activity. Strict pruning and green leaf management are essential for better aeration and pest control. The vineyard is located at the bottom end of the estate close to the Berg River. This sprawling 7 hectare vineyard has 4 different clones and produces different styles of Shiraz that is treated and managed separately in stages of ripening. The 2014 vintage was virtually made in the vineyard and nurtured in the cellar.

About The Harvest

The grapes were picked at between 24.5° and 25.5° Balling.

In The Cellar

Fermented to dryness on the skins after which extended maceration on the skins followed for another 14 days.
