Crafted more by obsessive selections of selections, than with fancy equipment, this wine is really the distilled vision of what one tiny corner of the universe tastes of. Firstly we had a philosophical selection to make – what variety of grape to craft this rare & individual wine from. It was an easy enough choice for us. We believe we’ve found an exceptional single vineyard block high in the Waaihoek Mountains (700m above sea level), above the sweeping Breedekloof valley.
The final selection process takes place while the wine matures in small 225L barrels at a constant, cool temperature. We taste each barrel many times a year, carefully & deliberately deciding which of the barrels will be good enough to go into this exclusive, hand-crafted wine.
