The grapes were sourced from two 35 year old bush vine vineyards from the Swartland and Stellenbosch yielding about 3 tons per hectare.
The grapes were hand harvested between 22.5 and 23 balling and delivered in small lug boxes to the cellar where they were stored overnight in a cold container. The grapes were whole bunch pressed, then cold settled and racked into a steel tank and untoasted barrels. 50% was natural fermented in barrel and 50% inoculated in steel tank. After fermentation the wine stayed on its fine lees in tank for 9 months, no malolactic fermentation and is no filtration was done. The wine was bottled in November 2015 and only 4333 bottles were produced.
