Viticulture

Vineyard:
Soil Type: Bokkeveld shale
Vine Age: 11 years
Irrigation: Drip Method
Harvest Date: March 2002

Vinification:

After early morning harvest cool grapes are brought into the cellar and then undergo skin contact and cold maceration, for 3 to 4 days to extract soft tannins and ripe fruit flavours before allowing fermentation to begin. Throughout vinification handling was kept to a minimum to ensure that true fruit flavors were retained

Tasting Notes:

Color: Deep dark purple in colour with opaque mountain pool centre
Nose: The aroma is complex due to the balanced use of new oak and ripe fruit - layers of black and red berry fruit with a well structured complex and classic bordueax blend palate
