The grapes originate from the Swartland, Wellington and Agter-Paarl areas. The grapes were picked at optimal fruit ripeness around 24,5 degrees Balling and were allowed to ferment with selected red wine yeast at 26 °C, with regular pump-overs and punch-downs to ensure optimal colour and flavour extraction.
