The vineyard is located 150m above sea level on a north-west facing slope in the Bottelary Hills of Stellenbosch. Gravel soil offers less vigorous growth which, together with sufficient heat due to the slope and altitude, leads to ideal ripening conditions for fully ripened grapes.
Fermentation took place over 7 days on the skins in closed tanks at 20 – 25 0C, pump over every two hours, pressed with pneumatic press. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation occurred.
