In The Vineyard
The grapes for this wine are from vineyards predominantly facing in a South Westerly direction. These slopes overlook False Bay, Cape Point and Table Mountain and enjoy the benefit of the cooling sea breeze, whilst getting good sunlight exposure to ensure optimal fruit ripeness
In The Cellar
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to enhance tropical fruit ester production. Each component was stirred on its gross lees on a weekly basis for the first two months after which it was racked and kept on the fine lees for a further 2 months before stabilizing.
