Production and maturation: Harvested in the early morning from a selection of hillside and south facing vineyards. Hand-picked grapes from selected Cape vineyards at optimum ripeness (24-25 Balling) and crushed, but not destemmed, to enhance the fresh berry fruit characters. Fermented in stainless steel tanks for 7- 10 days and then a portion taken to barrel for malolactic fermentation,
with the balance being completed in tank. Matured in small French barrels for more than a year before being blended and gently fined.
