In the Bottle

Full bodied, deep purple coloured Malbec. Full of ripe, juicy berries and plum aromas on the nose follow through to a complex and deliciously layered mouth feel with well-integrated tannins. In the Vineyard (tendered by Rudolf Jansen van Vuuren) The Malbec vines were planted in 2016 and thrive on the decomposed
high mineral granite Oakleaf with sub–dominant Glenrosa and Tukulu soil formations on the mountain. The block is carefully manipulated for high concentrated flavour with low yields. Controlled irrigation and 5 strand
hedge system with moveable foliage wires. The high trellis system ensures perfect vertical shoot positioning. Hand harvest in February at dawn to keep grapes cool for vinification.

In the Cellar (guided by J.G. Auret)

The grapes were harvested by hand, de-stemmed and then crushed. Maceration and controlled fermentation was undertaken at 25°C for a period of 10 days. The fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks with two pump-overs per day. The wine was matured in 1st fill French barrels. Before bottling and labelling at the Estate the wine was stabilised and filtered.
