About The Harvest
Grapes are selected from specially grown vineyards in the Bottelary area of Stellenbosch. Bunches are picked at about 18-19 Balling in the early mornings.
In The Cellar
The grapes are whole pressed and only soft pressure applied to get out the purest juice delivering the restraint apple aromas Chenin blanc so pleasantly offers.

The juice is fermented extremely cold in tank and then allowed lees maturation for about 3 months prior to finishing and bottling. The residual sugar is rounded to perfection by a splash of Muscat de Alexandrie just before bottling to deliver an exotic richness to the lovely apple and fresh lime acidity of Chenin Blanc.
