We first came across Flextank’s Apollo tanks on a visit to Napa in 2013, and were fortunately able to source them in for the 2014 vintage in South Africa. Started with a couple of Apollo tanks for the 2014 vintage, but were so impressed with them that we now have 12 of them at our cellar.
We love the versatility of Flextanks, and the high levels of hygiene and purity they bring to our wines. They are perfect for fermenting both white wine and red wines on the skins, and are extremely easy to clean and keep full. The fact that we get oxygen permeability without oak influence really works well with our approach of trying to make wines that express a sense of place.
The Apollo tanks are also perfect for small batch experiments where we want to test a new vineyard or winemaking technique, but want to ensure the lowest volatility or other faults in the wine. It’s often hard to maintain the highest possible quality on small batches, but our Apollo tanks consistently deliver!
