ageing : Best enjoyed in the freshness of youth or within 2 years of vintage

in the vineyard : The drier conditions resulted in smaller bunches and immense concentration. The Cape Winelands was cold enough to ensure proper vine dormancy. All varieties showed really well this year; overall we see lovely acidity levels and beautiful expression. The grapes are partially sourced from selected vineyards on unique limestone soils that our Chardonnay clones thrive in. The remaining component was grown on deep decomposed granite soils that add richness and texture.

in the cellar : Wines were fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures between 13°C and 16°C. After fermentation the wine was kept on the lees for 2 to 3 months, and stirred once a week to add richness and complexity.
