Culinaria Pinot Noir Chardonnay is a Wine of Origin Western Cape. Grapes used for the production of this Burgundy-style blend originate from Durbanville (Chardonnay) and Elgin (Pinot Noir).

in the vineyard : The Pinot Noir component from Elgin enjoys winds that cool down the whole valley, while the vines grow in well-drained soils – conditions that contribute largely to the varietal flavours of this variety. The Chardonnay component from Durbanville originates from vines growing on south-easterly slopes situated close to the Atlantic ocean, where a cool growing climate ensures favourable slower ripening.

about the harvest: Pinot Noir grapes were harvested at between 21 and 22.5 degrees Balling. Chardonnay grapes were harvested at between 20 and 22 degrees Balling.

in the cellar : Both varieties were hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed. The juice was allowed to settle, then fermented separately. The wine-makers crafted different blends to ensure the perfect balance of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
