The grapes come from vines planted on Tafelberg sandstone and shale. The grapes were hand picked into eighteen kilo boxes.

Before pressing, the grapes were given four to six hours on their skins in the press. Fermentation was carried out in a mix of stainless steel tanks and concrete eggs using wild yeasts and lasted for twenty-one days. The wine was then left on its gross lees for six months before bottling.

Elgin Vintners

The Elgin Vintners are a partnership of six dedicated grape growers who, believing in the excellence of the terroir and diversity of their vineyards, have combined their resources to cultivate and produce a range of high quality wines. They hail from the beautiful Elgin Valley, a high inland plateau completely surrounded by mountains, seventy kilometres along the coast from Cape Town. This cool climate region was long known for its apple orchards but since the turn of the century quality conscious winemakers have been taking advantage of the temperate conditions, afforded by the high altitudes and cooling winds from the Atlantic, to grow exemplary Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
