Coral pink hue with a vigorous stream of fine bubbles. Bold strawberry and red berry fruit on the nose. There’s more of this in the mouth – with cherry, strawberry and bold red fruit on entry. The fresh, zesty lemon and citrus zip of acidity adds succulence to the mouthful. A broader creaminess then develops with signature toast and biscuit notes. Balanced and harmonious, the wine is well structured, long and complex but refreshing and vibrant throughout.

Vineyard / Terroir / Climate The biggest part of this vintage blend hails from Altima vineyards, situated in Elandskloof where the best vineyard sites and soils are found on the steep slopes surrounding this picturesque valley. Good decomposed shale soils, from the Malmesbury group of soils, are the predominant soils on the farm. These soils tend to have a high water-retention capacity and are high in organic matter, resulting in vigorous growth. The Chardonnay vineyards trellising system is vertical shoot positioning, whilst the Pinot Noir vineyards are trellised using the posted vine method.
