CLIMATE & TERROIR: Maritime climate with relatively dry, warm summers and mild winters. The red colored soil is rich in clay and minerals.
VINIFICATION: The pinotage is gently pressed to give a light color but no tannins. The chenin blanc is harvested later and is therefore fermented separately. Fermentation takes place at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks. Then the wines are blended.
