The Vineyards, planted in 1999 in two
separate blocks. The vineyards have
differing soil water holding capacities
which enables us to give different
amounts of water at different times.
Elevation 120m – 150m. Soil type is mainly
heavier klapmuts, over decomposed
granite. Clay lies 1.5 – 2m Down.
The grapes were handpicked between 25th
February and the 8th March, in Tonne
batches. Wild yeast fermented for 8 days
in open cement tanks. Mid ferment
temperatures did not exceed 30 degrees.
Matured in French oak for 24 month. The
wine was bottled unfiltered and
Our Shiraz is reminiscent of cooler
European style Syrah, with white pepper,
abundant raspberries thus making for a
good food match. The wine is subtle and
does not overpower delicate food
