"This is categorically the best bottle-fermented sparkling wine I’ve ever drunk from South Africa” Christian Eedes - Wine Magazine, 29 April 2019

“It is set to become something of a benchmark in the category “ Michael Fridjhon - Business Day, 15 May 2019

The Chardonnay was selected from various sites from Darling and Robertson regions. A combination of sites consisting of decomposed granite and weathered shale with rich limestone deposits.

The 2012 vintage has been one of the greatest vintages to date and this maiden release offers wonderful balance, ripe fruit and restraint. The Chardonnay were hand- selected and hand-picked. After whole bunch pressing with the separation of cuvee from the taille the clear juice was mainly fermented in stainless steel with a portion fermented in traditional barrels from Tonnellerie Artisinale. After the first fermentation, the wine was prepared for secondary fermentation in the bottle.

The wine was left on the lees for 5 years before the sediment was removed in the traditional process of remuage and dégorgement. The bottles were then corked and laid down for a further six months cork maturation.
