Harvested in the second week of February 2018 from block 8 and 9 on Welgegund Farm in Wellington. Having secured grapes from this certified heritage vineyard for the 2019 vintage, Painted Wolf winemaker Jeremy Borg was made aware that there was some 2018 vintage wine available. After tasting, he decided to purchase the wine and bottle this first vintage. This wine was harvested and fermented by Friedrich Kuhne, winemaker and viticulturalist at Welgegund, before being moved to the Painted Wolf cellar where it was further matured and finished off by Jeremy. The vines were planted in 1974 and sit at the base of a hillside composed of Tukulu soil, a decomposed granite. The vineyard is a certified heritage vineyard under South Africa’s Old Vine Project, designed to preserve the surviving old vineyards of South Africa.
