Wine Making

In creating the No.6 the aim was to make a wine that best expresses the quality and purity of the fruit that Welbedacht Wine Estate, its terrior and cellar has to offer. Small parcels from a variety of sites on the farm were hand selected and individually vinified in our cellar to allow the varietal characteristics of each cultivar to fully develop. After 18months maturation in 2nd fill French oak barrels the blend was assembled and returned to barrel for a further 9months to marry all flavours. The final blend consists of the following 6 varieties; Syrah Petit Verdot Malbec Mourvedre Pinotage and Viognier.
