Our cellar practices
Built in 1941, the Middelvlei cellar was extended in 1999 by the addition of a maturation facility for 900 small barrels.

Although Tinnie shares his father's firm belief in traditional winemaking methods, the cellar boasts a combination of both traditional equipment and new technology. New equipment includes a destemmer/crusher that gently removes the stems and crushes the berries to minimize hard tannins in the wine. Another new addition is a new must cooler to cool down the crushed berries before the fermentation process, therefore better preserving the fruit flavours. The wine is fermented in a combination of new stainless steel tanks and traditional open cement tanks.

The Cellar hosts a maturation facility for 900 x 225 litre barrels. Most of the barrels are made from French oak and only a small percentage is of American origin.

The wine is bottled on the estate, making use of a mobile bottling plant.
