The Journey from Vineyard to Bottle

Our Clairette Blanche grapes come from the Breedekloof region in South Africa, grown on 41-year-old vines using a bush vine trellis system. The grapes are hand-picked in the early morning to ensure optimal ripeness and quality. After being whole-bunch pressed and settled for 24 hours, the grapes are racked to 4th fill French oak barrels for further fermentation. The wine is then aged for six months with regular ‘bâtonnage,’ creating a beautiful texture and mouthfeel. This meticulous process from vineyard to bottle ensures the highest quality of our Clairette Blanche wines.
