Our philosophy is to craft Chardonnay of great purity, reflecting site and the season in which it was grown. Meticulous attention and care in the vineyard is most critical in allowing that expression. Elgin is one of the Cape’s coolest wine growing areas with favourable climatic, soil and topographic conditions.

These vineyards are positioned on south-facing slopes of which the soil is mainly white mineral sandstone and quartz on a clay sub-base. The vines are trellised and have access to supplementary irrigation.

The grapes were whole bunch pressed on a Champagne Pressing cycle and using only the cuvee. 100% barrel fermented, using 30% new 228 litre fine-grained oak barrels and the rest in 2nd and 3rd fill oak barrels. 20% went through malolactic fermentation.

The wine spent 9 months in French oak barrels. (228 lit)
