Winemaker: Louis Strydom
The grapes were hand-picked in the cool of early morning and the grape bunches were gently destalked and lightly crushed. On the sorting table, all excess stalks and rotten berries were carefully removed by hand. Fermentation took place in small 300 litre open top oak barrels with three weeks’ extended maturation. The wines were punched down manually five times a day, ensuring maximum colour extraction from the skins. Each variety was separately vinified and blended after 18 months of maturation.
