Winemaking

The Vantage Vineyard is on one of the coolest sites on the property. High on a ridge with a panoramic view of Stellenbosch and its surrounding mountains with the Atlantic ocean in the distance.

Vineyards

The vineyard is 2 hectares of bush vines on a granitic ridge high up on the estate. It faces completely south and is therefore exposed to the sea breezes from the South and sheltered from the heat of the afternoon sun. This allows for extended hang
time of the fruit without it becoming overripe. The vines are 19 years old and yields around 5 tons per hectare.

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 4 tons per hectare.
