The grapes were sourced from prime vineyards in the Western Cape area. The conditions for the healthy growth and ripening of the grapes during the growing season (September - December) were ideal. The rainfall during the winter before the vintage, as well as the growing season was average. The rainfall was 820mm for the 2012/2013 season compared to the long-term annual average of 700mm.
The grapes were harvested by hand and were picked during February 2013. Grapes were picked at optimum ripeness from about 21¢X Balling. In the cellar the juice received 30 minutes skin contact. 100% was tank fermented.
Winemaker¡¦s Comments The nose and palate show hints of tropical fruit and a generous touch of spice. Luscious peach and guava flavours add to the fruitiness of this elegant wine.
