Pinot Noir comes from our coastal Firgrove Vineyards near False Bay – planted on decomposed granite. The Chardonnay was selected from Robertson with soils that have high natural limestone content. Both varietals are hand picked: Pinot Noir for length of flavour, Chardonnay for fruit and elegance. Produced in the Méthode Cap Classique cellar, Robertson. A unique first for South Africa whereby both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay were pressed in the same press. Fractional recovery from the whole bunches ensured that only the quality juice went into fermentation. After fermentation the wine was lightly fined and bottled for the secondary fermentation. A minimum lees contact time before disgorging of 15 months. Great salmon pink in colour makes this wine look extremely attractive. Noticeable ripe strawberries from the Pinot Noir with a creamy complexity from the Chardonnay. An explosion of raspberry fruit together with some fresh sherbet on the palate with a long fine creamy mousse.
