In the Vineyard: The grapes used in this wine were picked from 28-year-old bush vine vineyards with low yields and good quality fruit. The moisture stress in the vineyard resulted in tiny berries, allowing for concentrated flavours in the wine. The grapes were sourced from an area renowned for top quality Chenin. Most of these vineyards were established on Clovelly and Avalon soils.

Vinification: The grapes were handpicked at full ripeness during the coolness of early morning. The average sugar content of the grapes was around 22–23°B, allowing for a ripe, full-bodied wine. Half of the juice was fermented with partial solids at 16°C, enhancing the rich, round fullness of the wine. The other half was fermented at a cooler 14°C in stainless steel tanks, preserving the delicate fruit flavours of the Chenin grapes. Bâtonnage, the stirring of the lees, took place weekly, which allowed for greater richness in the wine.

In the Vineyard: The grapes were sourced from vineyards grown in a cross-section of regions and specifically selected for their fruit concentration and optimal varietal expression. These soils typically tended to be derived from decomposed granite and so-called Table Mountain sandstone. Vineyard tactics included pruning to two-bud spurs, shoot removal, bunch thinning, green harvesting and canopy management for best ripeness and quality.

Vinification: Fermentation differed according to variety, with fermentations taking on average eight to 10 days and regular pumpovers for colour extraction. The Cabernet Sauvignon component was left on the grape skins for extended maceration for up to three weeks, to allow for optimal colour and tannin extraction, and polymerisation that imparts the concentration and backbone of this blend. The Merlot component was fermented cooler to preserve the delicate yet bright dark berry fruit notes that are typical of the grape variety. The wine was matured separately in older French oak barrels for 12 months for subtlety and integration before final blending and bottling after a light filtration.
