Syrah is planted on warmer, northerly facing slopes with better drainage at different altitudes. Some Syrah vineyards are planted more densely (6 250 to 8 333 vines per ha) on slopes too steep for mechanical production (tractors etc.) in the typical échalas style of the Rhône region in France.

L’Ormarins is the main estate in the group farms and is situated in the Franschhoek area. The farm has a combination of both low-lying land as well as moderate to steep slopes. There is an altitude difference of 385m between the lowest (165m) and the highest (580m) points on the farm.

The vineyards are mainly planted on the slopes of the Groot Drakenstein Mountains where the granite soils produce robust, expressive wines.

We have recently planted some Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards of which a selection are Guyot pruned. These blocks are mostly planted with the movement of the hot afternoon sun taken into consideration in an attempt to prevent exposure of bunches to direct sunlight. New Pinot Grigio blocks are planted on easterly or southeasterly facing slopes, which are cooler and angled against the hot afternoon sun.

In 2011 the property which belonged to Graham Beck, situated to the east of L’Ormarins, was bought and now forms part of the L’Ormarins vineyards. Most of the vineyards were uprooted and only the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blocks were left as these grapes will be used for our Méthode Cap Classique sparkling wine.

L’Ormarins is situated in a high rainfall area with an average of 1300mm per year with peaks in June to August. In October the southeast wind is a concerning factor and canopy management, like shoot positioning, is always important during this time of the year.

L’Ormarins has an annual average temperature of 25.8 ˚C.
