VINIFICATION & VITICULTURAL DETAILS
The Carignan was picked first towards the end of January from 14 year old, unirrigated bush vines from Wellington. The Cinsaut, from the Helderberg region, was then picked in mid – February. These are 42-year old, unirrigated bush vines. Lastly, the Cabernet Sauvignon was picked early-March from 18-year old trellised and irrigated vines on from the Stellenbosch region (Polkadraai).
All components were crushed and destemmed (except for the Cinsaut which was 30% whole bunch) and naturally fermented. After fermentation the different varietals were pressed and kept separate in 225L barrels. In June the barrels were first racked and the Divergent blend was made up in July after which the wine spent a further 4 months in barrel until bottling at the end of the year.
Total acidity: 5.4g/l
Residual sugar: 2.0g/l
