Winemaking Techniques

The grapes were cold soaked for a day. After traditional skin fermentation, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation.

Vineyards

The vineyards lie in deep red soils ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines.

Vintage Conditions

Bud break were 5 to 7 days later compared to the 2020 vintage, giving rise to later flowering and a late start to the 2022 season. Rain and cold weather conditions at the beginning of November had a very positive effect on set and was a contributing factor to a better 2021 season. The cool summer conditions gave the 2022 season a start with a slow ripening period and grapes reached phenolic ripeness 3- 4 weeks later. These factors contribute to more fruit intensity and higher acidity levels.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with steak, mutton bredie, hamburgers and pizza.
