Ageing
CellarGrapes were crushed and allowed cold mac-eration for 24 – 48 hours. It is inoculated with French yeast strains and fer-mented in open concrete tanks with manual punch down of the cap every two hours for another 4 - 5 days.

The wine is then drained from the skins and further fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation has completed, it is matured in 100% French oak over a period of 18 - 22 months.
HarvestGrapes are picked between 25° - 26° Balling.
VineyardGrapes for this wine are harvested from 48 year old bush vine from the Bottelary property. Low yields increase fruit intensity and depth of flavour. These old vine gems have slower ripening cycles delivering more mature fruit and a distinct chalky finish generated from a mix of granite and red clay.
