Winemaker's Notes

The 2017 vintage is a full-bodied dry red wine with a classic claret character. The grapes for this select wine originate from a single farm where the vines are planted at an elevation of 190m above sea level in sandy clay soil on a South Eastern slope which is the coolest slope in the Southern Hemisphere. The vines are 10 years old and pruned to produce a low to medium yield of 8-12 tons per hectare. The grapes were destalked, as is the traditional South African custom, cool crushed and cold soaked for a few days prior to fermentation. During fermentation, pumping over the skins was done 4 x per day which gently extracts color and tannin. After fermentation, the wine is placed in French oak barrels for 18 Months. It will reward further cellaring for 8-20 years.

Sustainability and Carbon Neutral Certification

The estate is unique in that it is the only South African winery, and one of three in the world, that is carbon neutral. To further mitigate the environmental impact and ensure sustainable practices, the estate has commissioned an Environmental Management Plan and employ an environmentalist and a horticulturist to maintain biodiversity best practices. 10% of the farm's land is set aside for the conservation of endangered and beautiful Fynbos. Fynbos comprises 80% of the Cape Floral Kingdom which is the smallest yet richest in biodiversity per unit of area one of the 6 floristic botanical kingdoms/zones in the world.
