These vineyards are situated in the Upper Langkloof, close to the peaks of the majestic Outeniqua Mountains. Planted in rocky granite soils on four wire Perold trellis, over 600m above sea level.
Harvesting takes place early-March during early morning to ensure the coolest possible berries. The fruit is handled with extreme care and only the best berries are hand selected. At the cellar the clusters are destemmed and lightly crushed into a closed tank and left on the skins till the next day. Then the free run juice is separated and fermentation takes place at cool temperatures for about a month. The wine is left on its lees for another 6 months before bottling.
Colour: Clear crisp translucent colour.
Bouquet: Beautiful fresh green pepper, cut grass, fynbos opening up to passion fruit and guava fruit salad nose.
Taste: Fresh tropical fruits and cut grass/green pepper palate with a mineral flint finish, well balanced acidity and a lingering finish.
