The Abyssinian is a blend of Mourvèdre (57%), Cinsault (27%), Syrah (15%), and Grenache (1%) made from hand-harvested grapes off old bush vines. The Swartland grapes (from sites with shale and decomposed granite soils in Paardeberg, Malmesbury and Riebeek West) were crushed and fermented on stalks and skins in open fermenters. Natural fermentation was allowed and post-fermentation hot-soaking was done to integrate tannins and natural acids. The wines were matured separately in a collection of seasoned 300 litre French oak barrels for 12 months.
