Winemaking

The Chronicle began as our Estate Blend in 2002 and evolved into what it is today. We use a component from each of our 17 red vineyards over the estates 55 hactares. The soils, aspects and terroir vary between all the blocks so by combining them we are producing a blend that gives the best overview of each vintage for the estate as a whole.

Vineyards

17 vineyard blocks over 55 hectares and 8 soil types. The vines vary in age, from 10 to 26 years old. The soils near the top of the estate are shallow and very well drained where the lower slopes tend to have deeper, richer soils. This variation in terroir and varieties result in a unique, complex wine.

Vintage Overview

2018 was a warm and relatively dry vintage. In the midst of the worst drought, the Cape had experienced in decades the vineyards had to be managed very carefully so as not to overstress them. This meant a slightly larger than usual green harvest at veraison which led to a lower than normal yield, around 5 tons per hectare.
