The grapes for the Durbanville Hills Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from a variety of low-yielding vineyards (between six and nine tons per hectare), established between 1985 and 1990 and planted in deep, dark red soils at around 250 metres above sea-level. Each vineyard was vinified separately. The Cabernet Sauvignon was oak matured for 12 months using predominantly French oak, utilising a small percentage of new oak together with older wood as well as wood alternatives.
