VINEYARDS

Made primarily from cold pressed Merlot, the anchor vineyard for this delicious wine is now 20yrsMade primarily from cold pressed Merlot, the anchor vineyard for this delicious wine is now 20yrsold. Located on a granite spur in the foothills of the Voor-Paardeberg Mountain, the berries arewell exposed to sunlight. Exposure to sunlight is essential to eliminate green flavours from the fruit.

The soil has a high clay percentage and this lends softness and volume to the wine. Great careis taken to ensure that the vines do not bear too great a crop or suffer from drought. This is donethrough green cropping of the vines and micro irrigation. Both practices help to preserve thenatural acidity, freshness and vibrancy of the grape aromas.

VINIFICATION

This short route, from vine to press, ensures minimaldegradation of the fruit aromas and a very moderate extraction of colour.

All free run juice is kept separate from the “colour fraction” to ensure a deliciously subtle salmoncolour. The juice is cold settled to remove any coarseness and fermentation is done in stainlesssteel tanks. The wine is 100% unoaked. A six-month period of maturation on the yeast leespromotes richness and complexity.
