It was our desire to produce a Bordeaux Blend and so we planted the classic varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. These vines were planted on carefully selected sites and took 9 years to reach maturity. The grapes were fermented whole with native yeasts and left for 5 weeks on their skins. The wine was then barrel aged for two years followed by four years of bottle maturation.R163.00

The 2015 vintage commenced two weeks earlier than normal with low rainfall in many areas and strong variation between day and night temperatures which is necessary for quality winemaking. These moderate climatic conditions during the harvest season contributed to exceptional flavour and deep colours in our red wines.
Harvesting occured at optimal ripeness when the grapes were between 25 â€“ 26Â° Balling. Picking was done in the early morning hours to ensure the grapes arrived cool at the cellar. Dry ice and sulpher was added prior to transport to protect the grapes from oxidation. Cold soaking was done for 24 hours before inoculation. Grapes remained on the skins for 24 hours to allow for colour extraction. Reductive winemaking practises were followed to retain as much flavour and complexity in the wine as possible. Fermentation lasted between 4 and 6 days at 22 â€“ 25Â°C. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in 300L medium toasted Vicard and Taransaud barrels of which 10% was new French oak, 80% was second fill French oak and the remaining 10% was Hungarian oak â€“ to add spiciness. Barrel maturation lasted for 18 months whereby the wine was racked only once.
