This wine is from a selection of vineyards around the Swartland, combining barrels from the granite sands in the Paardeberg with those from wines that came from the koffieklip soils west of Malmesbury. Winemaker Thinus Kruger's vision was to make a wine that would focus on freshness and show lively fruit, ranging from red cherry to the black savouriness of liquorice. The Shiraz parcels were fermented and matured separately. The wine spent 8 months in old 225-litre French oak barrels and no acid, yeast or enzymes were added. During primary fermentation, the wines were pumped over twice a day to extract a lively tannin to balance the fruit concentration of the wine. The Grenache and Mourvèdre components were unoaked and matured in stainless steel.
