Rounded by a subtle The palate is announced with tangy and refreshing entry full of vivid lemon and marmalade flavour. The same toasty sourdough notes then broadens with a precise fantail of flavour as promised on the nose. It is complex and well defined, with nothing out of place – just sumptuous and elegant.

Vineyards & Soils

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.
