Excellent served as a chilled aperitif or to accompany seafood and dishes that are spicy or served with cream-based sauces. This is an extremely versatile and food-friendly wine.


In The Vineyard

The grapes were sourced from vineyards in Paarl, Stellenbosch and Durbanville. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101-14, some of the vines received supplementary irrigation from a micro-irrigation system while in other instances, fruit was grown under dryland conditions. Yields averaged around 8,5 tons per hectare.


About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested by hand at 21° to 22° Balling in March.
Yields averaged around 8.5 tons per hectare.


In The Cellar

The fruit was crushed gently pressed to extract excellent quality juice. After clarification the juice was put into three different temperate-controlled stainless steel tanks and fermented with different yeasts at 15ºC for three weeks.
