In The Cellar
A variety of vinification methods were used in making the components of this special blend. Open top fermentations with punchdown routines as well as closed fermentations and pumpovers were employed to suit the needs of each variety in the blend. The resultant, soft tannins and berry flavours have been blended to compose a modern, fruit driven wine with class.

Our range of wines is made to reflect the personality and winemaking philoshophy of the Stellenbosch region and of the finlayson family.
