in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Philadelphia and Stellenbosch areas. The vineyards are situated on south to south-westerly facing slopes at altitudes of between 60m and 80m above sea level. The vines, grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstocks Richter 99, R110 and 101-114, received supplementary irrigation by means of an overhead sprinkler system.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 22 to 23º Balling during February and March. After pressing the juice was fermented in second- and third-fill barrels and kept in maturation for a period of six months before blending. The Chardonnay and Viognier grapes were separately vinified.
