This wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

in the vineyard : 
The grapes were sourced from vineyards in and around the Western Cape. Planted between 1990 and 1998, the vines are grown in decomposed granite on a southerly slope, situated some 50 to 150 m above sea level. The vines, grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 110, are grown under dryland conditions while some of the vines received supplementary irrigation from either a micro-irrigation, drip or overhead sprinkler system.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 23° - 25° Balling from mid-February until the end of March.

in the cellar : The fruit was crushed and fermented on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 25º to 28º C for two weeks. Upon completion of malolactic fermentation the wine was matured in wood for a period of 16 to 18 months.
