Grapes are whole bunch pressed and left overnight to settle in stainless steel tanks. The wine is the racked to 3rd fill French oak the next morning. The wine spent 10 months on its primary lees without any batonage. The wine doesn’t go through Malolactic fermentation to retain length in the wine. No commercial yeast or enzymes were used during the winemaking process.
Label Story: For us everything in life is about camaraderie, about savouring moments with those closest to you. However, camaraderie is not only between friends but also between the farmer, workers in the vineyards and vines and about the final product being shared between friends over a good meal. The stamps show a bit of our heritage with the ship symbolizing the Dutch settlers to the Cape and the Springbok being our South African National animal.
