The objective is to interfere as little as possible in the creation of the wine making process" . The importance of the terroir is fundamental to obtaining a high quality wine. For red wine, the grapes are fermented with the aid of natural yeasts in open stainless steel tanks at between 28 and 30ºC. Without any outside influences and by using only wild yeasts that occur naturally on the skins, the wine remains true to its terroir and its micro-climate. The skins are punched down 4 to 8 times during peak fermentation. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 225 litre French barrels. During the following 18 to 20 months, there is minimal handling of the wine to allow it to evolve, stabilize and integrate with the wood. Sulphur levels are kept to a minimum and carefully balanced, to preserve the wine on the one hand while allowing it still to develop on the other. When necessary, the wines are racked by means of gravity flow. No mechanical pumps are used. Racking assists in the proactive development of the wine and leaves unwanted sediment behind. There is no filtration, only a light egg white fining prior to bottling.

Sizzling steaks on the fire, prego rolls, braai broodjies with boerewors. Smoky beef ribs will all go well with a slightly chilled wine.
