in the vineyard : 

Amidst the tangy sea spray, crisp breezes and energizing ozone mists, something almost mystical occurs where Two Oceans meet  and merge along the southern coast of Africa. The Indian and Atlantic oceans fuse in a purity of power to release a magnetising life force over the endless blue horizon. In its energising slipstream, you'll find abundant marine life, healthy coastal vineyards and lively, refreshing wines enjoyed by people who live the way they like. We call it the Two Oceans effect.

The Cape's Coastal Region enjoys a temperate climate, cooled by day-time maritime breezes from both oceans and a drop in night-time temperatures to allow grapes to ripen slowly. In addition, the moderate humidity means vines are far less prone to disease than in areas with higher moisture levels.

The winemaker works very closely with a team of viticulturists and he rigorously supervises pruning, suckering and canopy management for optimal crop yield. During the ripening season the grapes are tasted daily for ripeness and also chemically analysed to ensure they are picked when varietal flavours are most concentrated and there is a good balance between fruit and acid.

The vineyards (Viticulturist: Bennie Liebenberg)
Grapes were chosen from a variety of vineyards in the Western Cape of differing age, altitude, aspect and slope, giving us the building blocks to blend a inely balanced bubbly with appealing, fresh characters.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand between 21° and 23° Balling.

in the cellar : 

In the cellar the juice had no skin contact and was fermented at 13° - 15°C for 12 days. After fermentation, the wine was carbonated to give it its lively sparkle.
