Simonsberg-Stellenbosch, South Africa
The grapes come from the oldest vineyard block on Delheim planted back n 1985. The maturity of the vineyards with its deep roots produce exceptional quality grapes. Located on the foot slopes in the Simonsberg mountain in a pocket where conditions are optimal for the growth of noble rot, we are
privileged enough to produce an award-winning noble late harvest wine.
The grapes are picked on numerous occasions. Each parcel is sorted to make sure that only the top quality grapes are selected. These beauties are then whole bunch pressed and fermented in French oak barrels for the duration of 9 months.
