Picked at optimum ripeness, these grapes are destemmed and underwent natural fermentation in large French-oak fermenters. Alcoholic fermentation lasted about 21 days during which gentle pump-overs encourage delicate flavour and colour extraction. Malolactic fermentation follows after pressing of the skins. The wine spend a few months in 2nd and 3rd fill French-oak barrels.

This wine is a natural with barbequed steak and sausages – think South African “braai”!
