Grapes come from two cool, Maritime bush vine Pinotage vineyards planted just off the shoreline of the South Atlantic, near False Bay. The sites have a high diurnal range, with daytime temperatures cooler than inland Stellenbosch and ocean winds during the growing season. One site consists of light-textured sandier topsoil with decomposed granite, while the other is more rooted in clay portioned granite.

The vineyard is harvest in two tries by hand, 15 days apart. 25% of the grapes are fermented whole-bunch in open top vessels. 50% is de-stemmed and only left on skins for three hours before pressing and fermentation separately in tank (without skins). The final 25% was fermented destemmed and fermented in open top vessels. Ferments are handled gently with no punching-down. Once fermentation has finished the wines are manually basket pressed and blended. The resulting blend is allowed to go through malo while ageing on lees for eight months before racking and bottling unfiltered and unfined. The wine has trace amounts SO2 (less 20ppm total).

90 points: The Wine Magazine

Cherry, cranberry and raspberry plus a subtle herbal note on the nose while the palate is light bodied, juicy and fresh with a slight earthy quality to the finish.
