'For us everything in life is about camaraderie, about savouring moments with those closest to you. However, camaraderie is not only between friends but also between the farmer, workers in the vineyards and vines and about the final product being shared between friends over a good meal. The stamps show a bit of our heritage with the ship symbolizing the Dutch settlers to the Cape and the Springbok being our South African National animal.' – Lukas Van Loggerenberg, Wine maker

Vinification:
Dryland bushvine grapes planted in 1960 against the mountains of the Paarl area.The vineyard is approx 2Ha but because of the age and years of neglect while the grapes were being delivered to coops the yields are extremely low with 2017 yielding 2.4T (an improvement on the 1.7T of 2016). We started nurturing the vineyards in 2016 with Lukas pruning and suckering each vine himself to assess the damage. We have continued this effort with a bit of outside help in 2017 to try ensure this vineyard will be able to deliver grapes for as long as possible. The soils in the vineyard vary greatly depending on where in the vineyard you are with granite, koffieklip(ferocrete), sandstone and shale that can be found.

Viticulture:
Grapes are whole bunch pressed and left overnight to settle in stainless steel tanks. The wine is the racked to 3rd fill French oak the next morning. The wine spent 10 months on its primary lees without any batonage. The wine doesn’t go through Malolactic fermentation to retain length in the wine. No commercial yeast or enzymes were used during the winemaking process.

Tasting notes:
'Grapes from a 2ha block in Paarl planted in 1960. Matured for 10 months in old oak. A haunting nose of citrus, peach, herbs and talcum powder. Once again, this wine impresses with how harmonious it is – pure fruit, coated acidity and great length. Intensely flavoured but remarkably light with no apparent gaps from entry through mid-palate to finish. “Effortless to make,” says Van Loggerenberg as testament to the high quality of the fruit, and it shows.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 96/100

Analysis:
Alc: 13% pH: 3.45 TA: 5.8 g/L
