In The Vineyard

Vines planted in Estcourt type, weathered granite topsoil on a layer of gravel and a crumbly clay sub soil. Yield of 8 tons per hectare.

In The Cellar

Cold morning grapes were picked, destalked, crushed and pumped into red wine fermenters where enzymes for flavour extraction were added. 24-hour skin contact was given before being lightly pressed. The juice was settled clean and treated with Bentonite to make protein stable before being fortified to 18% Alc.
