Introduction

Ekliptika is named after the phenomenon in which the earth, stars and moon align in their orbit with sun. Both the name and the label illustrate our biodynamic way of farming. This Bordeaux styled red blend is shaped to suit our unique terroir and is composed of the best batches of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Terrior

Rooted in the oldest viticulture soil in the world, it is made up of decomposed granite on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. This vineyard enjoyed the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the day and cool air at night flowing down the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries and good, natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and sunny warm summers, with the Helderberg Ward being the coolest in the Stellenbosch region.

Viticulture

The vineyards are meticulously cared for by hand and the crop is reduced to ensure maximum quality. Biodynamic (organic) practices are followed and therefore no herbicides or chemical sprays were used in the production of these grapes.

Vinification

This wine is made naturally and in a biodynamic way by not making use of any commercial yeasts, enzymes or fining agents. It is further not filtered or cold stabilized and may therefore in time show harmless sediment. The Ekliptika was matured in a combination of new and mature French oak barrels for 24 months and with proper cellaring, this wine will improve and continue to reward over the next 6-8 years.

Origin

Stellenbosch, South Africa.
