All the grapes came from a block on their farm located in Stellenbosch. All the vineyards are trellised. All grapes are harvested by hand in individual bins in optimal conditions to ensure true quality from beginning to end. The Pinot Gris is picked in three batches. Early pick to add freshness, middle pick to add structure and a small late pick to add body. This wine is predominantly made up of the first two picks. This wine was whole bunch pressed. It was then naturally fermented in predominantly stainless steel and a small portion in old oak. It spent around 6 months on the lees. The wine was later blended before bottling. The wine is nice and fresh with hints of Granny Smith apple some pear and white peach. The lees contact adds lovely texture and weight to the palate.
