The Terra del Capo Pinot Grigio is a blend of grapes from 3 different regions in the Western Cape, each contributing its own individual character. Groenekloof contributes beautiful citrus flavours, fresh acidity and structure; Elandskloof brings its characteristic fresh apple and bright acid flavours, and L’Ormarins provides rich, full stone fruit flavours.

about the harvest: Harvesting began: 12/01/2017
Harvesting ended: 02/03/2017 Although the drought conditions persisted, ideal weather conditions throughout the growing season and harvest resulted in healthy fruit and small berries with great flavours and exceptional acids. A great vintage.

in the cellar : This wine is an expression of our older, clonal selection vineyards. Grapes were hand-picked between early January and early March. Upon arrival at the cellar, they were whole-bunch pressed immediately to minimise colour extraction from the blue/grey grape. The juice was allowed to settle overnight before being racked and cold-fermented using selected yeast cultures. The wine was kept on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks before being bottled.
