Growing Season
The Cape Winelands was finally relieved from the years of drought due to the decent rains brought on by the winter of 2020. The entire summer season was very much considered to be moderate compared to other summer seasons. The milder summer resulted in the grapes ripening slower and on average the varietals were harvested about 2 weeks later than normal.

It was challenging to wait for the grapes to ripen, but on a positive note, we were able to judge exactly on which day to harvest to achieve perfect ripeness. The harvest of 2021 will definitely be remembered for challenging our patience, but most of all for producing wines of exceptional colour, flavour and above all, great quality.

Followed by a mere 30 minutes skin contact directly in the press before pressing the juice. The wine then remained in a temperature-controlled steel tank for 3 months.
