In The Vineyard
The grapes used for this wine are harvested from 5 - 20 year old bush vine planted high up in the Bottelary Hills. The soil types vary from red clay to sandy soils. Grapes harvested from vineyards planted to sand ripen a bit faster due to higher temperatures in the vineyards - therefore Sauvignon blanc from cooler vineyards is blended with the Chenin Blanc to regain some fresh acidity in the wines.
About The Harvest
Grapes are picked at optimum ripeness around 22 Balling.
In The Cellar
The grape juice allowed some skin contact with the grapes. The juice always partially go through a native yeast fermentation, before it is inoculated with a special brew of different commercial yeasts.

It is fermented cold in stainless steel tanks over a period of 2 to 3 weeks at temperatures varying between 11° - 15° C and left on its primary fermentation lees for at least 3 months before refinement and bottling.

Varieties: 83% Chenin Blanc, 17% Sauvignon Blanc.
