The Blend of Chardonnay Pinot Noir

The intriguing flavour combination of strawberry, raspberry and citrus comes from the blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. The Chardonnay derives from Durbanville where cooling late-afternoon breezes contribute to its elegant character.

The Pinot Noir with its enchanting berry flavours originates from the Elgin Valley, famed for its knack with this variety. Fermented separately, both varieties were left on the lees for six weeks to ensure complexity. Blending took place before bottling under pressure with just the right concentration of carbon dioxide to ensure a fine and vivacious bubble.
