About The Harvest

With a late start to the winter season preceding the 2019 harvest, good rainfall was very much welcomed after a three year drought. Spring was characterised by big weather fluctuations, but conditions improved with the onset of summer. Temperatures were moderate in December and January, followed by a hot February. Harvesting kicked off a little later than normal. A larger crop than 2018, with promising quality.

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.
