This wine has fermented for five days with regular punch-downs then barrel matured in new French oak barrels for 36 months. It is made to produce a wine that is full bodied, high in tannins and berries that lead to a clear, dry, smokey finish.

Cathedral Peak vineyard sits in KwaZulu-Natal’s, Drakensberg National Park, South Africa’s most dramatic landscape. It is dominated by the jagged peaks of the mighty Drakensberg mountain range. One of South Africa’s 8 World Heritage Sites, the Drakensberg National Park covers 250,000 hectares, starting in the north of the province at Cathedral Peak and curving southwards, clinging to the Lesotho border, all the way to Bushman’s Nek.

We are blessed with a unique terroir here in the central Drakensberg. The area is a summer rainfall area and active growth is from late September To March. In this period we get 934 heat units with a high of some 32°C in January and February. The mountains with its sheer cliffs creates anabatic and catabatic wind flows that sends cool night breeze over the vines.
