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 higher, cooler slopes of the farm that is located in Klein Simonsvlei, Paarl. All vines are trellised, and range from ten to twenty years old. The vines are planted in dry land and may receive two supplementary irrigations per year.

WINERY
The grapes were picked over a range of ripeness levels to balance freshness with fruit. After crushing, the must was in contact with the grape skins for four hours before fermentation started at 13°C, taking 4 weeks to complete. The juice was kept on the lees, with stirring taking place every two days. No malolactic fermentation occurred.
