In the Vineyard

The grapes originate from vines that were planted in 163 in the Piekenierskloof region. These bush vines grow on sandy, loamy soil and the vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 3-4 tons per hectare.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand-harvested very early in the morning, in middle to end February, allowing the fruit to retain their natural flavour. Only free run juice was used. It was allowed to settle and inoculated with selected yeast strain and fermented in new 500L French Oa barrels for 6 months. Four 500L French Oak barrels produced.

Food Pairing

This wine can be served and paired with a variety of spicy dishes like curries, full flavoured fish, roast chicken, duck, pork chops and truffles.

Also ideal with crayfish, prawns and four cheese gnocchi.
