in the vineyard : Soil: Chardonnay vines are planted in deep, cool soils with good moist retention properties. This ensures a minimum of moist-stress under dry land conditions and thus enables the vines to ripen the fruit to its full character.
Climate: The Swartland falls within the coastal winter rainfall area. Warm, dry summers, moderated by cool Atlantic breezes.
Annual rainfall: 400mm average.

about the harvest: Low production of 6 ton per hectare from young bushvines. The grapes were harvested at full-ripe stage.
