The winery building’s industrial nature is softened by uncomplicated architecture and design. A composition of simple, natural materials and clean, strong lines characterize the structure, offering clarity of form within a breathtaking environment.

The vines cropped between 5 to 8 tons a hectare. The grapes were handpicked at optimal flavour ripeness at sugars of around 22 Degrees brix and acidities of between 7.0 g/l to 8.0 g/l. The grapes were then transported in a closed truck to our winery on The Helshoogte Pass in Stellenbosch.

The grapes were destemmed and crushed and pressed immediately in our inert press. The press juice and free run juice were kept separate and settled overnight, before the clean juice was racked off. Only the free run juice from the best blocks is used for the Reserve Collection Sauvignon blanc. The juice was fermented at 15 degrees Celsius in stainless steel tanks with selected wine yeast.

5% of this blend is made up of wine fermented in old larger format barrels and matured there for five months. After fermentation the wine was sulphured and left on the lees for five months with regular lees stirring before stabilization, filtration and bottling.

Food pairing

Best served cold and drunk as an aperitif or served with fresh summer foods such as wild oysters, asparagus with hollandaise sauce or fresh grilled yellowtail with salsa verde.
