VINTAGE
2017 was another hot and dry vintage in the Cape. Although the day time
temperatures were warm, evening temperatures were much cooler than normal
resulting in wines with incredible weight and texture, yet with great acidity and
length. The dryness of the season resulted in minimal disease pressure with fruit
arriving at the winery in very good condition.
VINIFICATION AND MATURATION
Fruit was carefully hand sorted and naturally fermented, whole berry. Post
fermentation maceration was allowed for two weeks, followed by gentle
pressing. Maturation was for a total of 18 months in French oak, in a selection of
300 litre casks and 3000 litre Foudres. The wine was bottled with minimal fining
and a minimal filtration.

Alcohol content 14.5 %
TA 6.01 g/l
pH 3.44
RS 1.64 g/l
