Producer

The Elgin Vintners are a partnership of six dedicated grape growers who, believing in the excellence of the terroir and diversity of their vineyards, have combined their resources to cultivate and produce a range of high quality wines. They hail from the beautiful Elgin Valley, a high inland plateau completely surrounded by mountains, seventy kilometres along the coast from Cape Town. This cool climate region was long known for its apple orchards but since the turn of the century quality conscious winemakers have been taking advantage of the temperate conditions, afforded by the high altitudes and cooling winds from the Atlantic, to grow exemplary Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.

Vineyard

The grapes come from the Eikenhof Vineyard, planted in 2004 on Koffie Klip soils. Green harvesting is employed prior to veraison and the vines are trained to double perold. The grapes were hand picked in three stages into eighteen kilo boxes.

Winery

Following a five day cold-soak at 8°C, alcohlic fermentation took place in tank, followed by malolactic fermentation also in tank. The wine was then transferred to French oak barriques, twenty percent new, where it matured for twenty months.
