  • Vinification

    This wine fermented with selected yeast at a controlled temperature with regular punching down and pumping over (5x/day), skin contact of 16 days after fermentation was allowed. Free flow and press juice stayed together. Malolactic took place in barrels with sulphur addition only after that for the first time. Matured for 18 months in 225 liter French oak barrels, 50% new and 50% 2nd fill. Filtration was done prior to bottling without cold stabilization.

  • Tasting Notes

    Full bodied, yet elegant wine with great depth, noble structure and finesse which shows intense cherry and black berry flavours. Perfectly judged oak influence is precise and supportive. This blend can mature beyond 10 years and reflects some of the Cape’s fine quality.
