In the Vineyard:The grapes were harvested at an average ripeness of 23°Balling. Semillon was harvested a 2 weeks before the Chenin blanc and the varieties were handled separately before blending.

In the cellar:The grapes were destalked & crushed, the mash cooled and lightly pressed. Free run and press vinified separately. Juice was settled for 24-48 hours to ensure a good clarity. The racked clear juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain and fermented between 12 – 14°C for 21-23 days. The wine was racked, blended and stored cool (12°C) on fine lees. Prior to bottling the wine was stabilized, racked once more and lightly filtered. The blend consist of 55% Chenin blanc and 45% Semillon.
