The grapes for this wine is from the same vineyard as South Africas most awarded Malbec and in fact, a three barrel selection of new French and American oak selection 300 l barrels from our Single Vineyard Collection Malbec 2016. The wine is racked after 12 months of ageing, then blending the three barrels and put back into the same three barrels for a further 6 months. The extended period of ageing , gives time for more concentration and aroma development as well as tannin integration to take place. which results in this special bottling.
