Wine of Origin South Africa. Tulbagh Basin.

In the vineyard

The Saronsberg Winery is located in the Tulbagh Basin, surrounded by the Obiqua Mountains to the west, Winterhoek Mountain to the north and the Witzenberg Mountains to the east, whose peaks exceed 1,500 meters. The microclimate is temperate, with characteristics similar to the Mediterranean climate. The soils are rich in clay. The 2017 vintage was characterized by a hot and dry climate. These climatic conditions have led to slightly lower quantities but of excellent quality. The average production was 5.9 tons / ha. The vines are about 12 years old.

In the cellar

After harvesting by hand in the early hours of the morning, the grapes are de-stemmed and the must is left to rest for 3-5 days, at a temperature of 8 °. After bringing the temperature of the tanks to 18 °, the must is inoculated with selected yeasts. Subsequently, the fermentation in the tanks takes place at a temperature of about 24 ° C. The wine is then left to mature for a total of 20 months in French oak barriques from Allier (80% new and 20% second-use). The wine is then filtered, bottled and further refined for a few months before being marketed.
