There are 8 blocks of Pinotage situated on various aspects of the large hill that comprises L'Avenir, allowing certain blocks to be isolated for specific vinification styles and premium wines. We selected Block 2 (1.2 hectare) as single vineyard selection for the Single Block Pinotage wine. It is also dry land vineyards. The Indian Ocean is less than 20km away, and gentle afternoon sea breezes drift over the farm and exert a cooling influence against the late afternoon Cape sun.

cherries and delicate floral notes.
