In The Vineyard
The grapes that this wine is produced from come from a single block of 10 year old bush vines on Hoopenburg.
About The Harvest
The grapes were picked at a ripe 25 ° Balling late February.
In The Cellar
They were fermented on the skins totaling 3 weeks. The grapes were then pressed off, with the wine going into French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation to occur. Here the wine was aged for 24 months in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels. The wine was then lightly filtered and bottled.
