David’s grandfather, Max, bought the 183-hectare farm, which lies in the shadow of the majestic Hawekwa Mountains and boasts a panoramic view of both Du Toit’s Kloof and Bains’ Kloof mountain ranges.

Winemaking process

Grapes were picked at two different ripeness levels, de-stemmed, crushed and given 2 hours soaking in the press. After pressing, the juice settled in tank for 3 days and was inoculated with yeast. Low fermentation temperatures of 13 degrees were maintained for the 3 week fermentation period. The wine was racked and prepared for bottling.
