Although the 2018 winter was wetter than the previous year, the months leading up to harvest in February 2019 were dryer. Luckily the temperature was more moderate during this period and the full effect of the drought was less than it could have been if temperatures were high. The high density plantings of this bush vine Cinsault in Malmesbury Shale-derived soils (with 10% decomposed granite) produced excellent fruit concentration in 2019. The heritage Pinotage vineyard in southeast facing decomposed granite soils, excelled in 2019, with a darker more structured fruit profile than we experienced in 2018.
