AREA OF ORIGIN: Robertson and Stellenbosch, Western Cape,
All Estate grown fruit - Pinot Noir comes from our coastal Firgrove
Vineyards near False Bay – planted on decomposed granite and
Chardonnay was selected from our Robertson vineyards whose soils
have high natural limestone content.
Both varietals are handpicked: Pinot Noir at 20°B for
complexity and length of flavour and Chardonnay at 18.5-19.5°B for
fruit and elegance.
Produced in the Méthode Cap Classique cellar, Robertson.
A unique first for South Africa in that the Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay were pressed together. Fractional recovery from
the whole bunches ensured that only the quality juice went into
fermentation. After fermentation the wine was lightly fined
and bottled for the secondary fermentation. A minimum lees
contact time before disgorging of 30 months.
