“These vines were planted in 1985 in very shallow shale soils in the Paardeberg, being an anomaly as the mountain is granite-driven. These soils prove why our region is known for wheat farms as it remains a difficult soil for vineyards in a warm region, dryland farm context. A small tractor road divides the Plat’bos and Skaliekopvineyards. Skaliekop is harvested at the end of January, early February over four picking dates. The wines of the different pickings were aged separately, before blending and then bottling at the end of the year. This is the first vintage qualifying for the Certified Heritage Vineyards (CHV) seal and forms part of the Vine Project.” Winemaker’s notes
