A combination of the climate, soil, altitude and slope orientation of the vineyards is considered to capture as much varietal character as possible and to ensure an expression of fresh fruit at lower sugars. The climate is mild and the south and east-facing slopes offer abundant sunlight in the leaf canopy to produce healthy fruit. The soil is predominantly medium textured and well-drained with good water retention.

The grapes were sourced from different areas. One in the Robertson area and the other in the region of Paarl. The vineyards aged between 14 and 16 years, produced an average yield of 12 to 15 tons/ha. The trellised vineyards received supplementary irrigation. Pest and disease control were implemented according to South African subjective IPW standards.

This off-dry wine is made of 100% Chenin Blanc. The grapes were picked at the end of January and the beginning of February with very low sugar levels for this specific style of low alcohol wine. In the cellar the wine was fermented separately and blended after fermentation was completed.
