The Chenin blanc grapes are sourced from vineyards situated in the valley floor of the Tulbagh region. Grapes were hand-picked
in the early morning and brought to the cellar in smaller lug boxes. Bunches was destemmed and the berries partially crushed before
entering the press. Only the free-run juice was collected and cold-settled for a period of 48 hours. The clear juice was racked off the
lees and inoculated with a yeast strain known for slower fermentation and fermented at a temperature of 16°C. Fermentation lasted for
about 3 weeks. The wine was removed from the gross lees and aged on the fine lees in the tank for at least 3 months. Battonage once
a week – a process where the fine lees are stirred to ensure maximum wine contact with the yeast during the process of yeast autolysis.
This enhances complexity and a full-bodied wine.
