Grapes are cooled in our cold room then transferred to our stainless steel and concrete tanks for fermentation. A combination of partially destemmed and whole-bunch clusters ferment spontaneously with minimal sulphur additions and no acidification. A soft délestage is performed 2-3 times per day.

No 2000/009327/07) An authorised financial services (FSP15289) and registered credit provider (NCRCP49)The quest to understand the name of this wine and the wine itself is now the stuff of legend. While we are not about to reveal all, we can say that the style of the wine is a reflection of our belief that the Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is eminently suited to blended reds. Winemaker Marc Kent tweaks each year's vintage to best reflect the character of his ancient vines, the year's seasons and the sometimes wild, sometimes calm weather that the grapes ripen in on South Africa's Western Cape. Since 2017, the wine's principle grape, Syrah, has been ripening in 'one of the world's greatest Syrah vineyards' – exclusively in the Swartland, an area north of Cape Town. The pursuit of finding the origins of the name is somewhat of a legend. On top of that, the creator never reveals a secret of how the wine is made and will tweak every vintage. As a result, the blend will vary depending on the growing season.

Syrah is the predominant variety and accounts for a 73% contribution to the blend. Grenache (11%) from bush-vines on Porseleinberg is the subtle superstar of the blend that offers a perfumy brightness and allows the wine to deliver a gastronomic texture. The moderate conditions were a welcome relief for Swartland Cabernet Sauvignon (7%). The cooler, balanced growing season was particularly beneficial in providing a more elegant, old-world style of the variety. In summary: 2022 is a vintage which shows exceptional balance and texture with a youthful elegance. These hallmarks certainly favour significant ageing potential.
