Small parcels of selected fruit are sourced from various vineyards on the Kalmoesfontein farm, and the rest of the Paardeberg.
The processing is quite straightforward when you are working with fantastic grapes from old vineyards. The grapes are cooled down overnight and the next morning most of the different grapes are pressed together, whole bunch. The juice is then transferred to old casks for co-fermentation and maturation. A small percentage of the grapes are picked a bit earlier for some acidity but the rest are picked at what we reckon is a good ripeness and flavour.
The aromas are very complex and change considerably in the glass. Perfume, spice, tea, stone fruit and citrus blossoms are some of the notes that can be detected. In the mouth the texture and ripeness and gentle tannins result in a wine that has incredible length and a complex flavour profile. The wine also has wonderful fruit volume characterised by stone fruit and mineral flavours.
