The Petite Sirah grapes were harvested from trellised vineyards planted on decomposed granite soils on the upper slopes of Fairview farm in Paarl. A small percentage vintage Tempranillo (WO Paarl) and Souzão (WO Swartland) fortified wines are included to added layers and complexity to the Cape Ruby style.

Petite Sirah (also known as Durif) is a natural crossing of Syrah and Peloursin, discovered by Professor François Durif in the south of France in 1880. Its intense colour and good tannin structure makes it an excellent blending partner. It thrives in warm climates, both here in Paarl and in the Swartland. The Souzão and Tempranillo are traditional Port-style varieties, fitting for this Port style of wine.
