Please Note: Vintages subject to change

The Tabakland (meaning tobacco land) vineyard was planted in 1992 where tobacco used to be cultivated. 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.

Training method: 5-wire vertical trellis
Harvest date: 14 March 2017. Harvested by hand.
Yield: Average of 34 hl/ha and 5.5 tonnes/ha

Wine was matured for 18 months in small barrels. Four barrels were selected from our range of about 23 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 barrels in order to make up this wine.
Following our approach of minimal intrusion, very little pre-bottling filtration was performed, and no stabilization, a sediment is natural and to be expected.
Barrel profile: 50% 1st fill, balance 3rd and 4th fill. 100% French oak.
