in the vineyard : A blend of 40 % Chardonnay, 35% Chenin Blanc, 25% Riesling selected from a number of vineyards. Vines were pruned to two-bud spurs during July to August. Shoots were removed during October, leaving only two to three shoots per hand-spaced spur. As yields were naturally low, no bunch removal was necessary.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand-picked and, where vineyard spacing allowed, by harvesting machine.

in the cellar : After light pressing, the grapes were cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks at an average temperature of 14°C, which allowed the fresh, natural grape flavours to be captured in the wine.
