grapes were sourced from the Kasteelsig vineyard which is owned by Painted Wolf Pack members Billy (Guillermo) and Penny Hughes. The grapes are organically farmed and will be fully organically certified in the 2013 vintage. The site is primarily red Glenrosa soil with some Oakleaf both shale rich duplex soils. The vineyards are irrigated. Kasteelsig vineyard supplies grapes for some of South Africans top boutique wines. Yields are round 8 tons to the hectare.

The grapes were hand picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they were hand sorted, destalked and gently crushed. The wine fermented in small open fermented bins with 4 punch downs per day. Before the wine was totally dry, we pressed and placed it in oak barrels to complete alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine matured in a mixture of French, Hungarian and American oak barrels for 14 months, approximately 40% new wood. A small percentage of merlot and Grenache were added to the wine to lift the fruit of the wine. 2400 bottles have been produced the bottling has been split and is sealed with both natural cork and screw cap.
