Made with 100% Grenache Blanc grapes from Swartland. Grenache Blanc thrives here, on deep “koffieklip” soils where production is low due to dryland growing conditions. The combination of clay mixed with small stones gives good water retention while allowing the roots to penetrate deep into the soil. Cool Atlantic breezes shape the grapes’ expressive freshness.
From the Swartland’s granite-rich, alluvial soils which produce low yields of small concentrated berries. Hand picked and naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks. 30 % whole bunch, 70 % whole berry fermented to add complexity and tannin structure. The wine is pressed and returned to tank for Malolactic fermentation. 15% spends a few months in older 300 litre barrels.
