This wine is made of 75% Chenin Blanc and 25% Viognier. Grapes are grown on 30+ year old trellised Chenin and 15 year old Viognier from hidden corners of the Cape. In the Breede River Valley, the vineyards stretch along the lower contours of the Hex River and Langeberg Mountains. The soil is mainly a Karoo type, red, lime rich soil on the higher grounds and sandy loam lower down the slopes. The climate is perfect for viticulture with the low rainfall summer months, tempered by cool afternoons and the cold winters allowing the vines to rest and to build up the reserves. Part of the Chenin Blanc is wild yeast fermented and kept on the yeast lees for as long as possible in order to achieve a long, juicy and rounded palate with a crisp fresh finish.
