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. The Chardonnay grapes were fermented in contact with selected oak and kept on the lees for approximately four months following fermentation, with bi-weekly bâtonage (stirring of the lees) to increase the mouthfeel and palate weight. The Chardonnay and Viognier grapes were separately vinified.
