Grapes from six different Swartland Chenin blanc vineyards are used (only dry land farmed bush vines). The ages of the vineyards vary from 33 to 49 years.
The grapes are whole bunch pressed and cold settling is allowed for the juice before racking into barrel for spontaneous fermentation. The wines age from vintage to vintage in old 300 L French barrels. No enzymes, acid, yeasts, nutrients are used and we focus on minimal intervention (use only sulphur).
