In the vineyard

The Chardonnay vines are grown in vertical espalier and are located in Darling and to a lesser extent in L'Ormarins and Robertson. These soils are composed of clayey shale and rich in organic matter. The Pinot Noir comes from vineyards located mainly on the L'Ormarins estate
(Franschhoek), to a lesser extent on the Altima (Elandskloof), Darling and Robertson estates, all located on steep slopes at around 180 meters above sea level. The soil is in some parts decomposed granite and in others alluvial soil.

In the cellar

The grapes are harvested by hand and then whole bunch pressed. The juices resulting from the different pressings are kept separate. The must is left to rest on the skins and inoculated with yeasts. After fermentation, the base wine is filtered from the skins and sugars are added before the second fermentation in the bottle. After the inoculation of yeasts, the wine slowly ages in the bottle for 2-4 years. After this period, disgorgement takes place, during which a mix of base wine and sugars is added. Further refinement follows for approximately 3 months before marketing.
