The Grapes were harvested from
vineyards planted in 2003, pictures
dating as far back as 1940 show no
previous agriculture having taken place
in this vineyard. Elevation 100m – 150m.
Soil type is mainly heavier klapmuts, over
decomposed granite. Clay lies – 1.2m

The grapes were handpicked in the 2nd
and 3rd week of March in 5 tonne
batches then wild yeast fermented for 8
days in open top cement tank.
Mid ferment temperatures did not exceed
28 degrees. Matured in French oak for 18
months. The wine was bottled unfiltered
and unfined.

Cherries bursting on the nose and
palate. Perfectly matched for red meats
or creme brulee. The virgin soils
influence the structure and boldness of
the wine.
