The vines, situated some 50m to 100m above sea level and planted between 1985 and
2000, are grown in decomposed granite, gravelly and Tukulu soils. Grafted onto
nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99, R110 and 101-114, the Darling vines are
grown under dryland conditions, while the Paarl vines received supplementary
irrigation.
The grapes were harvested by hand at 22º to 23º Balling during mid-February.They were given six to twelve hours’ skin contact in overhead drainers. The fruit was crushed and then cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for a period of three weeks at 16ºC.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
