New signs of life on the vines

September 16th, 2011

Our winemaker, Charl Coetzee, tells us what’s happening in the vineyards…

Springtime!  The time of year that the vineyards start to grow again.  New shoots emerge from dormant buds and active growth commences. This is a very exciting time, because when you think about it, this is the start of the new season, the beginning of next year’s wines. After careful and loving nurturing of these new buds, they will turn into strong vineyard shoots, carrying two or more healthy bunches full of flavour ready to be picked and processed in the cellar, and transformed into exciting wines. It’s a real privilege to be able to work so close to nature…
