Harvest time is here!
It only seems like yesterday when we reported that the vines are budding! And now, harvest time is here.
Like 2015, this is again an early harvest. The grapes ripened earlier due to the dry season and early heat wave during October and the months that followed. The dry, hot weather means the bunches are small. This should result in wines that will have concentrated flavours due to the skin/juice ratio.
The first variety hand-picked by our experienced team will be our first batch of our White Pinotage, followed by the Chardonnay.
Visit us on the farm during harvest and maybe you can twist the winemaker or the cellar assistants' arms to give you a peek view of what happens in the cellar at this time of the year.......................as long as they don't have anything top secret up their sleeves!!
