The average cold night and day temperatures increased the fruit acidity and grape quality of the Chardonnay. The Chardonnay was planted in limestone rich soils of Robertson. This ensured beautiful fruit expression. On the Pinot Noir the cold October and November weather led to smaller berry sizes, loose bunches and a better fruit concentration. The Pinot Noir was planted on cooler sites in the False Bay area, which contributed to the fresh acidity. With careful canopy management it was ensured that only the best bunches was left to ripen and produce this wine.
