Food Suggestions
A great accompaniment to dishes such as smoked chicken salad on a warm summer’s day or thinly sliced carpaccio served on a bed of rocket with a lemon olive oil and black pepper dressing.
In The Vineyard
Vineyards: 30 - 40 year old bushvines Bottelary Hills, Stellenbosch
About The Harvest
Due to a lot of rain during harvest, there was the risk of picking up rot in the grapes. We decided to harvest a little bit earlier than usual at 22º Balling.
In The Cellar
The grapes were crushed, the juice allowed to settle and 20% were taken to 3rd and 4th fill barrels for fermentation. The other 80% were tank fermented. Both wines were kept on its primary lees for 5 months, blended and then bottled.

Time spent on lees: 5 months 20% in older French oak
