About The Harvest

The vines really took their time to prepare for the 2021 harvest. Moderate weather throughout the season, and specifically during harvest time, resulted in grapes ripening slower, while developing exceptional colour and flavour.


In The Cellar

The grapes were destemmed and crushed with skin contact overnight before being pressed. The wine was then cold fermented for about 20 days, using different yeast strains. Following fermentation, the wine spent another 4 months on fine lees, before bottled.


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.
