Exactly 300 years after Cabrière had been granted to Pierre Jourdan, a state-of-the-art cellar was opened at Haute Cabrière, specifically to handle Pinot Noir. Through this experience of Methode Cap Classique, Achim had learned vital lessons about the fragility of a delicate cultivar. These were put into practice in the new cellar to capture terroir, unhindered by clumsy tannins. Sunk into the Franschhoek mountainside, the underground cellar is entirely gravity-fed. Grapes are offloaded through the roof, the berries channelled into fermentation tanks. Fermented juice is collected in barrels of French oak for maturation. All without mechanical manipulation.
