Shiraz, Pinotage, Tempranillo, and Cabernet Sauvignon sources from various vineyards in the Western Cape. A percentage of the grapes is picked earlier to retain optimal acidity whist the balance is picked at optimal ripeness. Gentle winemaking practices were followed to were followed to minimise the extraction of harsh tannin. Fermentation took place in upright fermenters with one to two pump overs per day, 26–28°C. Aging in the oak for 9-12 months prior to racking to the second phase of production.
Great care is taken at this stage to work as gently as possible to retain all the beautiful flavours from fermentation. The alcohol is removed via spinning come technology at low temperature under vacuum. The initial phase is to first remove flavour, set aside, then the alcohol is removed and once done we can take the flavour back to the de-alcoholised wine. There is a significant volume loss during this process, a portion of the alcohol water is then again put through the process to extract the water and added back. This helps to fill out the palate and balance acidity. Normal winemaking practices are followed from here in preparation for bottling.
