Vineyard

A selection of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from our vineyards in Robertson and Stellenbosch and hand selected parcels from the Western Cape.

Whole bunch pressing ensures fractional recovery. After settling of juice the two varieties are fermented separately. They are then cross blended along with reserve wine if necessary, bottled and left for 15 to 18 months yeast contact time before disgorgement.

Tasting Notes

"Light yeasty aromas, limey fresh fruit on the nose, and rich creamy complexity on the palate. Fine mousse gives freshness and fitnesse."
