 Background to this wine 

Each year I make one experimental wine from a different grape variety, only bottling it if I am happy with the quality. This allows for full artistic/ experimental freedom, with no pressure or expectations.

The Vineyards 

The grapes were sourced from a single vineyard, planted on Cape Hutton soils in the Bottelary region in Stellenbosch. 

Winemaking 

The grapes were hand harvested from a single vineyard at 22.5 balling and delivered in small lug boxes to the winery where they were refrigerated in a container overnight. The grapes were whole bunch pressed, then cold settled and then racked to shaven barrels where natural fermentation was done. After fermentation the wine stayed on its fine lees for 9 months in barrel for mouth feel and complexity. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation, no protein or cold stabilisation nor filtration were done.
