Pinot Noir 100%
The Kloof vineyard in the Elgin Highlands is dry land farmed, using techniques to maximise and retain the natural moisture in the land. The vineyard is south facing, with silica quartz / clay soils and its microclimate results in it receiving higher levels of solar radiation.
Grapes are harvested by hand and chilled overnight before hand sorting and destemming - although approximately 5% are added as whole bunches. Crushed grapes were cold soaked for 5 - 7 days before fermentation with natural yeasts in open top vessels. Twice daily gentle hand punching was used throughout the fermentation period. The wine was transferred to 500L and 300L French oak barrels (37% first fill,) where malolactic fermentation occurred followed by 12 months resting on the lees. The wines were racked and blended in stainless steel tanks, then allowed to settle by gravity for 2 months before bottling.
