The Swartland name originates from a description of the indigenous “renosterbos” or rhino bush, which appears to turn black, (“Swart” in Afrikaans), during the summer months. This hot, dry climate has an average temperature range of 25°C to 35°C and an annual rainfall of 450mm and 600mm, but the altitude of these vineyards creates a cool oasis in this arid landscape. Minimal intervention and environmentally friendly farming practices are paramount.The grapes were harvested at optimal phenolic ripeness. The skins, pips and stems were removed and the juice was then fermented at controlled temperatures of between 13°C to 14°C with aromatic yeast strains. Following fermentation the wine was stabilised, filtered and bottled, in order to preserve the freshness.
