Wine maker notes
The Kaaimansgat vineyard is in contrast to our homelocation where our own grapes originate from a gentle maritime location (and climate), while the mountain terroir of this Kaaimansgat vineyard enjoys real winters and altitude softened summers. High mountains defend against long days and offer late ripening conditions through their influence on shorter local diurnal sunlight conditions. A policy of non-irrigation is further cause for smaller fine berried concentrated fruit which offer a high skin to juice ratio. These grapes were fermented in classic Burgundian fashion and allowed to age in small barrels in contact with the original fermentation yeast. The wine reflects a traditional mineral quality which is symptomatic of the vineyards austere location. While currently tight and fresh the evolution of this bottling will gradually offer more pronounced nutty and creamy components with enhanced maturation flavours.
