In The Vineyard
The Chardonnay grapes are planted on some of the best South West facing slopes of the Polkadraai Hills. The two vineyards are lying at altitudes that range from 200-320 meters above sea level; these higher South West facing elevated slopes tend to give wines beautiful natural acidity, resulting in a pleasant pungency and longevity. The richness and full-bodied fruit has been accentuated by the open canopies of the vineyards during ripening. All these flavours are backed with a minerality from the decomposed granite soils of the Polkadraai Hills.

About The Harvest
The Chardonnay grapes were harvested at 22.5 - 23.5 ºBrix.

In The Cellar
Whole bunch pressed. After pressing, the juice was settled and racked to first, second and third fill 300L and 500l barrels, where it fermented and matured for 10 months on the gross lees with occasional lees stirring to add mid-palate weight and texture. 20% new barrels, 30% 2nd fill, 30% 3rd fill and 20% 4th fill barrels.
