in the vineyard : Sourced from a selection of Chardonnay blocks on our Simonsberg-Paarl vineyards.

in the cellar : 
The grapes are either whole-bunch pressed or berry sorted and the juice is then barrel fermented. The result is a vivid, complex fruit forward Chardonnay with gentle oak intervention on the elegant palate.
The Chardonnay is barrel fermented at a low temperature. The wine is matured on the lees for 11 months in 225 litre French oak barrels. We use only 25-30% new oak in order to ensure light oak treatment in our quest for elegance.
