Terravinium Reserve Red 2016


Farmed dry-land, thus not irrigated. The grapes were handpicked early morning and cooled overnight. Hand-sorted, only the best grapes were used. Grapes were either whole bunch pressed or partially destemmed. Carbonic maceration was also used on part of the wines. 11-month aging in 500l French oak barrels, 5000l foudres and concrete tanks. Wine was blended and bottled after 11 months. This is a complex Swartland terroir-driven wine.
