Winemaker Notes:

The grapes for this wine were sourced from two sites in the Swartland – certified organic grapes from the Kasteelsig vineyard and sustainably-farmed grapes from Werdie farm between Malmesbury and Darling. These grapes were hand-picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they were hand sorted, destalked and gently crushed. A portion was fermented in open bins and then handplunged four times a day. The balance was fermented in a rototank. No commercial yeast was used as these grapes ferment well with their own yeast. The wine matured in a mixture of French and American oak barrels for 14 months. Approximately 30% was new wood. This is a vibrant, complex wine with plenty of spice and red berry fruit.
