in the vineyard : The Chenin Blanc grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Stellenbosch, Darling and Durbanville areas. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were sourced from grapes in Klaasvoogds, which is situated between Worcester and Robertson. The 2005 vintage was two weeks early due to unexpected rain in the picking period.

in the cellar : The juice received no skin contact and was fermented cold at 13°C. It was left on the lees for two to three weeks to impart depth of flavour.
