The fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed, extracting 600 liters per tonne. The juice was cold settled overnight and then racked off the lees for natural fermentation with wild yeasts in barrel. The juice was barrel-fermented, of which two new 500-litre barrels were used, the remainder was fermented in 400-litre neutral barrels. The wine spent 11 months on the lees, imparting the wine with texture and complexity. 

The Chenin Blanc grapes come from Standord, in the Walker Bay subregion, which is located close to the southern tip of Africa's Cape South Coast. It is classified as a cool-climate site that contributes to the crisp minerality of the wine. The coastal breezes temper the warm microclimate and imbue the vines with moisture from the sea, the result is a longer hang time for the fruit, which allows the grapes to gradually reach maturation while building aromatic complexity and retaining natural balancing acidity. The vines are planted on mostly sandy soils, which offer excellent drainage properties. The vines are planted on trellises, judiciously irrigated and hand-harvested at optimum maturity
