And the vineyards (terroir):
The vineyards for the Tin Mine White all come from our Zevenwacht property on the Polkadraai Hills ward of Stellenbosch. The soils are decomposed granite with varying amount of structure and clay in the subsoils and the slopes are South to South West facing with altitudes between 200-350m.

How was it made:
The grapes were harvested at 22 – 23,5 ºBrix depending on varietal and site. After whole bunch pressing, the juice was settled and racked to a combination of 500l French Oak barrels for fermentation. The wine spent 7 months barrel ageing on the lees for a richer mouth feel and underwent partial malolactic fermentation.

Should this wine age / mature:
The wine has the potential to age for 3-5 years and will gain more complexity and richness over time.
