Orange River Cellars.
Blok F, on the farm Kayalani, spans 1.51 ha, and was founded in 1985 on red loam soil that drains easily. Colombard on Richter 99 rootstock was planted with a 3.35m row width and a 2m plant width. A roof truss trellising system was chosen as it provides enough foliage for ample production yields, and shade to protect grapes from the harsh Northern Cape sun. Vetch hay is used as a cover crop to protect soil moisture and to produce Nitrogen. Flood irrigation is still used to this day. Of the original 3300 vines, only 2896 remain. Grapes are hand harvested.
This very special wine will be launched in 2019.
