  • From a mature Cabernet Franc vineyard planted on the western slopes of the Klapmuts mountain on decomposed granite and laterite. The vines are trellised to allow maximum light and air penetration to ensure complete phenolic development of the grape tannins and the dark fruited Cabernet Franc flavours.The grapes were sourced from a single vineyard of Syrah situated only 6 km from False Bay on the chilly Atlantic Ocean. The vineyards are planted on low vigour, well drained, granitic origin soils. The vines are managed to retain a healthy balance between grape production and growth and the crop was reduced to 5.5 tons per hectare. The mature vines are naturally low yielding and all damaged or unripe grapes were removed before harvest. The fruit was uniformly ripe and was picked on the basis of analysis, taste and vine physiology.
