In The Cellar

Bunches were destemmed and whole berries went directly into the press. Kept constantly under carbon dioxide gas to ensure minimum oxidation, the grapes only underwent the softest pressing stage. The soft and short pressing ensured that only the free run juice as well as the outer pulp juice was extracted, which result in a vibrant, lively wine with an appealing colour.

Additional Information

For the last four years, the Western Cape experienced a severe drought with smaller crops year on year. This year our vineyards produced 45% more grapes than it did the past four years, thanks to good reserves accumulated in the post-harvest period, rain during critical berry growth stages and a moderate climate throughout the growing season.
