Grape variety 100% Chardonnay
Wine record Made from a single vineyard on the lower slopes of Klein Constantia. The grapes were whole bunch pressed with the must left on the grape lees at 6C for a period of 1 week before racking off for fermentation. 30% of the juice was fermented in new 500L barrels and the remainder in stainless steel tanks, it was then transferred to neutral 500L barrels. Malolactic fermentation was avoided in order to maintain the freshness of the wine. The wine was aged for 9 months before blending and bottling.
