In The Vineyard
Grapes are sourced from vineyards in the Piekenierskloof region. These vineyards are all bush vines and grow on sandy, loam soils. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 5 tons per hectare.
Fermented at controlled temperature for 8 days (24°C). The wine was wood matured for 14 months in 40% new and 60% second fill and older 225L French & American oak barrels.
Showing beautiful sour cherries, ripe currants, aniseed with notes of white pepper, vanilla pod, forest floor and tea leaf. Complex, medium bodied and layered blend with smooth well integrated tannin structure. Well rounded with a long elegant finish on aftertaste.
