Klawer, ready for the 2020 harvest

Klawer, ready for the 2020 harvest
published on:

Here we are again! Another harvesting season is upon us, and although it feels like yesterday that we released the 2019 vintage wines, we're ready to take 2020 by the horns!

We received our first grapes on the 8th of January. Renier Rossouw was the first farmer to stop here with a full load Chenin Blanc.

The “Blou Makou” did the honors with a full load, breaking the ice for the new harvest season.

The analysis on this load of "Steen" was very very good, or actually, perfect!

pH 3.23
TA 7.88
Balling 22.3

Analysis like this gives us hope for the 2020 wines & now we're even more excited to get the fresh new wines on the market for all the wine-lovers!

It' still early days, & the farmers need to check the analysis of each of their cultivars very closely, to ensure that they harvest their blocks at the correct time. As of the 20th of January, we'll take full capacity, being about 1200 tons per day.
