The relatively high percentage of petit verdot adds an intriguing wild perfumed note to the wine.

Details of vinification and oaking:
This vineyard was planned with the idea of making a single-vineyard blended wine. This is a small 2-hectare enclosed vineyard situated about 200 metres from the Oude Nektar farm (Stark-Condé). The soils, however, are different — vilafonte as opposed to the Oude Nektar clovelly and hutton soils — and the resultant wines are correspondingly different: softer in structure and with a wild fynbos note.

The grapes for this wine were harvested over a month-long period from mid-February to mid- March 2010. The grapes were cooled overnight before being de-stemmed and hand-sorted. The sorted grapes were then crushed into small, open-top fermentors and cold-soaked for three days before the on-set of fermentation. About half the wine was fermented with its natural yeasts. Fermentation occurred over a period of 7-9 days with manual punchdowns given every 4-6 hours. Stark-Condé Wines P.O. Box 389, Stellenbosch 7599 email: info@stark-conde.co.za www.stark-conde.co.za After fermentation, the wine was basked pressed and racked into 300-l oak barrels, all French oak, about 35% new. The wine was bottled without fining and filtration after 22 months barrel maturation.
