Vintage Overview

In some regions the dry conditions resulted in very healthy vineyards and smaller berries with good colour and flavour concentration. These conditions, along with the ideal cool weather during harvest time formed the perfect combination for an exceptional quality wine grape harvest, However According to the 2019 South African Wine Grape Harvest Report, the 2019 wine grape crop was smaller than previous year’s drought-hit crop, and the smallest crop since 2005. 

 

Winemaking

Only the best blending components are selected for this Bordeaux blend. Ultimately the Cabernet Sauvignon forms the backbone of this blend with the Merlot as an uplifting companion. They are kept separate throughout vinification and maturation. A meticulous selection of barrels was made. 18 months in a combination of first, second and third fill barrels
