Although only limited quantities are produced we always strive to produce elegant, quality wines from grapes sourced from the Stellenbosch region. The farm is owned by the Visser family, Theresa, Hennie and their twin daughters Andrea and Natalie. Our wine is made with curiosity, passion and love.

Maturation Potential

The wine is ready to drink now, but can be enjoyed for a further 2 years.

The Winemaking

The grapes were harvested by hand during the first week of February. Settling and clearing of the juice took place, after which yeast cultures were added. Fermentation took place at approximately 14 degrees Celsius. The wine was left to rest on the lees with stirring taking place once a week to add to the creamy mouth-feel of the wine and to ensure all lees flavours were released.
