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

During winemaking the cultivars were kept apart and then aged in second filled 300 litre French oak barrels.. The components were blended at 18 months.
