about the harvest: The grape varietals for the wine were grown in the Franschhoek Valley. Grapes were harvested by hand in the early hours of the morning and underwent a second sorting and selection to achieve this Rosé style.

in the cellar : Skin contact took place for 2-4 hours depending on the varietal before pressing and removal of skins. Cold fermentation at 13˚C took place in stainless steel tanks lasting 24 days before ageing on the lees for 4 months. 10% of the wine was fermented and aged in small French oak barrels. The grape varietals were specifically chosen to complement certain characteristics of this French style Blanc de Noir. All varietals were vinified individually and blended before bottling.
