in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from a variety of vineyards situated in the Western Cape. The vines, situated 100m to 150m above sea level and planted between 1980 and 1999, are grown in Clovelly, Hutton, Tukulu and Oakleaf soils. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101-14, the vines received supplementary irrigation from a micro-irrigation system while some vines are grown under dryland conditions.

in the cellar : The grapes were harvested early in the morning by hand at 22º to 24º Balling from February to March. The fruit was crushed and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 15ºC for a period of two to three weeks. The wine was left on the fermentation lees for two months prior to final blending. Juice and wine movements were kept reductive with minimal mechanical handling to retain the distinctive Sauvignon blanc flavour and quality.
