VINIFICATION & VITICULTURAL DETAILS
The grapes were sourced from two different sites. The Helderberg portion was picked on 29 January from Rustenhof farm. This is a young-trellised vineyard on
decomposed granite soils. The Banhoek portion was picked on 21 Feburary from Summercourt farm. This is a 15-year-old, trellised vineyard on a richer,
clay soil.
Grapes went into a cold room overnight at 10 degrees Celsius. The following day, the grapes were gently whole bunch pressed. The juice was settled
overnight at 10 degrees. It then went to barrel for natural fermentation in 100% old French oak barrels followed by natural malolactic fermentation. As little
batonage as possible. 11 months in oak. No acid additions were made to this wine: maintaining the natural acidity is a key component for us.
