The idea behind this wine is to select the white components in the winery that Peter likes most and to assemble a blend that represents that particular vintage in an honest and pure way.

It is not bound to an area or varietal - it is an assembly of interesting things that differs from year to year according to whatever performed well that specific season.

Vines from various vineyards in Firgrove, Swartland, Stellenbosch and Voor-Paardeberg.

The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness and cooled overnight to 4 degrees celsius. The next morning the grapes were pressed as whole bunches with no additives. The juice underwent spontaneous fermentation in French oak (nothing new), clay pots and egg shaped cement tanks. Deep winter the wine received sulfur, it's only additive. 10 months on the lees, blended and bottled.
