Production note

Made from different blocks on Steenberg, each vinified separately. Machine harvested in the cool early mornings to retain the delicate flavours. Skin maceration occurred after crushing from 8 – 24 hours at 10 degrees. The juice settled overnight and was then racked off clean, inoculated with yeast and allowed to ferment for up to 30 days at 13 degrees. The wine then lay on the lees for 90 days until blending, stabilizing and bottling in July 2014.
