Cellar All the grapes were given 12 to 24 hours extended skin contact before onlythe free-run juice was transferred to tank for fermentation. The wines
were fermented at low temperatures with selected yeast strains to highlight each vineyard’s specific characteristics. After fermentation the wine was left for a further four months in contact with the lees before putting the final blend together.
Harvest All the vineyard parcels were harvested and vinified separately.
The growing season was moderate with low evening temperatures and thus long hang time and even ripening. Harvest was 3 weeks later than 2018.
Vineyard What a vintage! The vintage was very early compared to 2019. Enough winter rain in 2019 and very cool growing conditions pathed the way for a super quality vintage in 2020. Yields in the vineyards was back to normal and balance was restored after 3 years of drought. The higher altitude Stellenbosch vineyards that face False Bay contributed texture and fruit, while the Robertson vineyards generally contributed more minerality owing to the limestone based soils.
