Cold skin maceration was carried out for six hours, the free run juice was then fermented in stainless steel tanks for two weeks at 12°C. The wine was left on the gross lees where batonage was applied for a week. The wine was thereafter racked and left on the lees.
The vineyards are found in a variation in meso-climates, exposed hills, and sheltered valleys, with Alluvial soils. Grapes are picked from a selection of these different wards in the Western Cape.
The 2022 season will be remembered for the initial cool weather conditions that made ripening very slow. Phenolic ripeness occurred later and that lead to longer maturation time in the vineyards, creating exciting wines that are full and complex.
