Winemaker Notes

The grapes for this wine comes from selected “Bush Vine” vineyards in Stellenbosch. The average age of these vines are 30 years and most of them are planted on decomposed granite soils. Owing to the nature of bush vines, careful canopy management was exercised so that no bunches were exposed to excessive sunlight and an even ripening of the grapes. For a change we had normal winter in 2020. Cold and very wet and even a little bit of snow on the mountains. Summer started a bit later than normal and thus the ripening was delayed by about 10 days. We had a very moderate but dry summer, exactly what we want for quality wine production.

Tight with flavours of melon, peach, guava and a hint of minerality. Masterly oaked with a lively crisp finish. This wine can be enjoyed now, but with careful cellaring it should age gracefully over the next 10 years.
