Two exceptional sites are employed to create a striking example of this most noble variety. The Stellenbosch component grows on a south facing slope a mere 4 kilometres from the ocean. In the summer months fresh South Easterly winds keep daytime temperatures down so that grapes ripen slowly and evenly. From the wonderful Limestone soils of Robertson comes the second component, which expresses its origin through an interesting minerality and snappy acidity. These vineyards were expressly chosen to complement each other and combine to produce a wine of elegance and purity of fruit as well as depth and character.
