A portion of the grapes were sourced from young vines on the Seven Sisters Farm. The majority of the grapes were sourced from Eikendal Vineyards. These vineyards are high density bush vines with a supporting pole. Soil are mainly "koffie klip", decomposed granite and clay. The growing conditions are challenging, yielding concentrated fruits with minerality from the partially stressed vines.

about the harvest: The grapes were picked to achieve a 13% to 13.5% alcohol content. A portion of the grapes were sourced from young vines on the Seven Sisters Farm. 

in the cellar : 

Whole bunches were pressed. No clarifying agent was used, and minimal Sulphur was added. Spontaneous fermentation took place in French oak barrels for 6 weeks. Malolactic fermentation occurred resulting in slightly higher acidity. Five hundred (500)litre (second and third fill) Burgundy barrels were used, and medium toasting applied. The wine was matured for 8 months in barrels, excluding that of the unwooded portion of wine from Seven Sisters Farm.
