Vineyard

This is a cool area, situated 12-20 km from the sea, with mean February (ripening stage) temperatures of 19 - 20°C. Soils are predominantly ferruginous (iron rich) gravel on highly weathered, soft Bokkeveld Group shale, situated at 200 - 300 m altitude and surrounded by Table Mountain sandstone mountains at heights of about 500 - 1000m, sheltering the area from the often extremely strong south-easterly winds in summer.
The high, strong growing canopies of our Sauvignon blanc vineyards ensures that the grapes easily reach optimal ripeness bursting with flavor precursors whilst having a good high acidity. The Semillon carefully selected from stoney soils which shows restrained vigour.
