The Viognier comes from vineyards situatedon high slopes of the Franschhoek mountains. The grapes are whole bunch pressed and aged in new and older French Oak bariques for 11 months. The Chardonnay comes from the Robertsvlei Valley in Franschhoek with a notably colder ripening temperature that protects the beautiful natural acidity of Chardonnay. The grapes are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed with a gentle champagne method. The wine is barrel fermented and aged in 500l French oak.
