The Chardonnay grapes originate from Robertson and the Pinot Noir grapes from Elgin. The Chardonnay was picked at 21,5 degrees Balling and the Pinot Noir at 23 degrees Balling. Vinified separately, the two varieties were bunch-sorted and whole-bunch pressed. The Chardonnay fermented at 14 °C and the Pinot Noir at 14,5 °C and both varieties were left on the lees for 6 weeks, to ensure flavour intensity and structural elegance. The two varieties were blended, settled and bottled prior to release.
