The grapes were hand-picked from three distinct vineyards in Swartland. The grapes from each of the vineyards were vinified separately to accentuate the subtleties of each of the blocks. 45% of the grapes were destemmed and underwent 24 hours of skin contact, followed by gentle pressing in a pneumatic press and fermentation in stainless steel. The fruit from the younger bush vines was fermented in concrete tanks,
while the older bush vine fruit accounted for 11% and was fermented on the lees in old 300-litre French barrels, at cooler temperatures due to the higher solids content. The wine was aged on the fine lees for a few months, before being bottled while youthful and fresh. 

The Chenin Blanc vineyards lie at the heart of Swartland at elevations ranging from 60 to 300 metres above sea level. Nestled in ancient sandstone and shale soils, the vineyards benefit from a unique combination of factors. The region experiences scorching, dry summers followed by cool, wet winters, creating an environment that maximizes the development of flavours and aromas in the grapes. Chenin Blanc is a standout varietal in this microclimate and thrives whether grown on trellises or as bush vines. The soils and dry land conditions are particularly suited for bush vine cultivation, resulting in small berries bursting with layered flavours, rich colour and soft tannin structures. 33% of the fruit for this wine comes from old, low-yielding bush vines which produce concentrated fruit. The vineyards are sustainably cultivated and the grapes are hand-harvested.
