Majority of the grapes are sourced from vineyards on north and south-east facing back slopes of the Tygerberg hills which are typical of the prime viticul- tural land that characterizes the maritime Durban- ville wine ward influenced by the cold Atlantic Ocean just six miles away. Cooled in summer by mois- ture-laden, seasonal coastal mists and south-eastern breezes, these hills benefit from a typically Mediterra- nean climate with generous rainfall during frost-free winters and dry, warm summers.
Ancient, shale-derived, deep and well-drained soils capture and retain water well into the summer, creating just the right balance between moisture and stress for the vine to naturally produce healthy, flavorful fruit.
The wines are handcrafted from start to finish. Grapes are hand picked and bunches and berries undergo a second sorting, also by hand, at the cellar. White grapes are processed in an inert nitrogen press to minimise oxidation, fermented in separate batches in small stainless steel tanks to capture a range of aroma and flavor characteristics, and then blended to achieve the winemaker’s vision of perfect balance.
A fresh, crisp wine with tropical fruit aromas and flavors and hints of gooseberries & fig.
