PRODUCER
The Joubert family acquired the Klein Simonsvlei property in 1898 and since then have been farming grapes for wine, initially supplying the wholesale market in South Africa. In 1950 Daniel Joubert – “Niel” – took over the company and continued upgrading the cellar and the vineyards. The dream of bottling the family’s own label became true in 1994 when South African wines were first opened up to export. Today the third generation is in charge of the vineyards and winemaking.

VINEYARD
The grapes for this wine are grown on the flatter parts of the farm that is located in Klein Simonsvlei, Paarl. The vineyard are planted in a mix of bush vines and trellised, and range from five to twenty-five years old. The vines are planted in dry land and may receive one supplementary irrigation prior to harvest in mid to late January.

WINERY
After crushing, the must was in contact with the grape skins for four hours before fermentation started at 15°C, taking three weeks to complete. The juice was kept on the lees, with stirring taking place every two days. No malolactic fermentation occurred and there was no use of oak at any stage.
