The vineyards lie on the south western edge of the Paarl region. The climate is Mediterranean – i.e. cold, wet winters and dry summers. Soils are a combination of decomposed granite and Malmesbury shale. In order to optimize the influence of terroir, all of the vineyards are managed according to organic principles and some are farmed without any irrigation. Vine age varies from 15 to 19 years. The grapes were all hand-picked, de-stemmed, lightly crushed and then fermented in small open-topped tanks. The varietals were harvested and fermented separately. After 10 months maturation in seasoned oak barrels the wine was blended and then matured for a further 5 months before being bottled.
