Winemaking process

The grapes are hand- harvested at optimal ripeness. They are then destalked, crushed and
fermented for 7 days on the skins in open fermenting tanks. The average fermentation temperature is 24-30° C. After
fermentation, the skins are pressed in traditional basket presses. The free run and pressed juices are combined and
malolactic fermentation spontaneously takes place in the tank. Now the wine is racked and 60% Cabernet Sauvignon,
30% Pinotage and 10% Merlot is blended. The wine spent 12-13 months in 225l French oak barrels
