In The Vineyard
The classic champagne varieties, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, are sourced from a
selection of prime vineyards in the Western Cape region. The sites are chosen for
their varying slope orientation, soils and micro-climates essential for the diverse
building blocks needed to impart complexity. The Pinot Noir vines grow in deep red
soil at an altitude of 320m above sea level, whilst the Chardonnay comes from
vineyards at 100m to 200m above sea level.
About The Harvest
The grapes are picked by hand in the early ripening stage.
In The Cellar

Only the cuvée, or best quality free running juice is used for the base wine.

the lees for 12 months to develop complexity and character. The sediment
is removed by the traditional French method of remuage and
