Variety Shiraz
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 500-1 000m, sheltering the area from the often extremely strong south-easterly winds in summer.
