The 19-year-old vines are grown along the mountainous slopes of Stellenbosch in a combination of Escourt and Glen Rosa soils. Located just 20km from the coast, the vineyard benefits from a cooling Atlantic Ocean breeze that encourages slow ripening. As the conditions can be windy with an average summer temperature of 28°C, the vineyard receives supplementary drip irrigation. At harvest, the vines yield an average of 8 tons per hectare. The annual rainfall in the region is 400mm – 650mm.

The grapes were hand-harvested from three selected vineyard blocks between 18° and 20°B using 9kg lug boxes. They were then hand-sorted and gently, whole-bunch pressed. 90% of the juice was fermented in stainless-steel tanks and 10% in old 400L French oak barrels. Secondary fermentation took place in the bottle. After completing the secondary fermentation, the wine was left to mature on the lees for 23 months before it was disgorged.
