Harvest
Vineyards planted in decomposed granite and sandy soils with north and
westerly facing slopes were identified in the Franschhoek and Stellenbosch
areas to make this Mediterranean-style blend. Well-manicured and settled
vines yielding between 5 - 6 tonnes / ha. Grapes were harvested by hand
between 22.2°B – 23°Balling with good harvesting conditions throughout.
 
Winemaking
Naturally fermented in barrels at 16˚C. The grapes were pressed gently up to
0.9 Bar pressure after a short period of skin contact. Partial malolactic
fermentation took place in older 225L French oak barrels and a 2,500L oak
Foudre. All five varietals were matured separately in barrel for a total
maturation time of 10 months before being blended for bottling.
 
Winemaker's Note
Elegant with spring blossoms, restrained peach, mango and stone fruit on the
nose. Subtle hints of oak spice and a refined fruit expression. A rich and wellstructured wine that finishes with elegance and freshness on the palate.
 
Cellaring
Ready for your enjoyment but will benefit from aging, drink up to 2023.
