The 2013 is a beautiful and elegant wine with good concentration and lovely fruit. The tannins are ripe and the wine has a very long aftertaste.

 

ORIGIN

The grapes are always sourced from the Rondekop Vineyards. Grown at 200 – 220 meters above sea level. These vineyards are extremely wind exposed and this leads to thick skinned berries that deliver very concentrated juice.

 

VINIFICATION

Grapes were hand-picked and de-stemmed BUT no crushed. The grapes were then cooled to 8 C and “cold-soaked” for 168 hours. Fermentation took place at 25 C followed by a 35 day maceration on the skins. After malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine went into 40% new French Oak barrels for 17 months.
