Additional Information

The grapes for this 2014 vintage were sourced from the Robertson Valley. With a long term average rainfall of just 255mm per year, the Breede River supplies us with ample amounts of water for irrigation. The vineyards were planted in the lime rich soils of the Robertson Wine Valley, widely known as one of the best areas to grow Chardonnay. The grapes were night harvested – this ensures that all the delicate fruity flavors stay in tact during the initial stages of production when the juice is very susceptible to oxidation. Inside the winery the free run juice is collected and clarified. Fermentation lasts two to three weeks where after the wine was allowed to mature in French Oak for 6 months before blending.
