About The Harvest

Good rainfalls and ideal cold weather conditions during winter ensured good nutrient storage and led to su cient underground water levels for the growing season. The early growing season with cool/moderate day time temperatures and cool evenings produced even budding. A mild December/January provided ideal ripening conditions for the  rst Pinotage grapes, however heavy rains in early February resulted in di cult harvestingconditions. Mild temperatures had a positive e ect on the cultivars picked later in March which resulted in grapes harvested at optimal ripeness, producing good colour and aroma extraction.

In The Cellar

5 days in open fermenters with the cap punched through by hand every two hours. Fermentation temperature was between 25 – 27°C. After malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine matured in 30% new and 70% second  ll French oak barrels for 16 months.
