in the vineyard : 

The grapes were selected from premium vineyards in the Stellenbosch region. The vines were grown in a diverse soil type with cool night temperatures and coastal fog to ensure high quality Sauvignon Blanc with expressive varietal characters. The vines were trellised on a five-wire system with an average yield of 10 tons/ha.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested during the night and early mornings at 22 to 24 Balling over a two week period to ensure a broad spectrum of flavours. No skin contact was allowed and a two-day period for settling was followed prior to fermentation. Fermentation took place at 13 - 15 Celsius in stainless steel tanks. The wine was left on its primary fermentation lees for about two months to ensure a more complex, balanced palate with a lingering finish.
