Chardonnay vineyards planted on deep riverside soil in E/W direction situated down the Bot River, Van der Stel Pass and the first year that we have started harvesting from another old Chardonnay block closer to the Bot River.
Handpicked at 19 Degrees Balling for fruit, elegance and high natural acidity. 2016 was our greatest yield to date.
The philosophy of this lady winemaker is vigilant attention and consideration in the vineyard with minimal but concise intervention in cellar, allowing each vintage to express itself from grape to bottle. Whole bunch pressing ensuring quality juice.
Four years yeast contact time before disgorgement.
