Description

Description

Winemaker: Louis van der Riet
Appellation: Calitzdorp
Grape varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyards
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are used in the production and the vines are trellised and micro irrigated planted in sandy Gamka River soil bed.  The grapes are harvested at the beginning of March.  The grapes are handpicked at optimal ripeness between 24 – 25 degrees Balling.

Winemaking
Cold maceration period is allowed before the fermentation process is started.  Fermentation takes approximately five to seven days in open fermenters with constant pump overs.  After the grapes are pressed the wine undergoes a second fermentation after which the wine is blended and bottled.  The Wine was macerated in Concrete Tanks with French Oak Staves.
