in the vineyard : 
After experimenting in the vineyards for a couple of years we are now confident that we know the viticultural recipe to create a light range of varietal wines with exceptional quality at a very modest alcohol level.
 
Some of the older Chenin Blanc vineyards were chosen to be harvested for this wine. The older Chenin Blanc vineyards normally, over time, reach a natural balance between crop level and canopy size. Vineyards chosen for this wine are some of the less vigorous growing Chenin Blancs with an open canopy that allows enough diffused sunlight into the canopy. This diffused sunlight enhances the development of the tropical flavours of the wine.
