In The Vineyard

Currently there are 22.39 hectares planted to Pinot noir on the estate, which equates to 27.6% of the total plantings. Clones include 667, 777, 113, 115 and PN5. The first vines were planted in 1989 and the youngest blocks in 2009. Vines range in age from 5 to 24 years. The soil is predominantly decomposed Bokkeveld Shale with underlying clay layers of varying depths. Vine orientation is North/South on North east and South facing slopes and North west/South east on the South facing slopes. Height above sea level ranges from 280 to 400 meters.


In The Cellar

For this wine, clones PN5, 113 and 777 are used. Extensive individual berry sorting was done by hand prior to crushing. This was followed by cold maceration at 12°- 14° Celsius for 4-5 days. The fermentation was allowed to start naturally. 80% was then inoculated with selected strains of Burgundian yeast, while the rest was left to continue naturally. During the fermentation, the skin cap was punched through by hand or pumped over 2-3 times per day. The wine was transferred to French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks where malolactic fermentation took place. The wine is partially matured in French oak for 3months to add complexity and silkiness. After tasting and blending trials, the wine was racked and prepared for bottling.
