Anton's notes -
Magpie Springs: The sauvignon blanc and semillon (wild farmed) comes from Magpie Springs in the Hope Valley. It has sand soil and is at the top of a hill near the ocean with strong ocean breezes sometimes. The vines are 25 years old and VSP trained and spur pruned.
The Deans: Pinot noir grown in the heart of the Picadilly valley, red clay over sandstone with an eastern facing aspect at the bottom of a cold deep valley, V.S.P. trellis and spur pruned.
How the wine was made: The fruit is hole bunch pressed semillon and sauvignon blanc fermented for one week on merlot stalks which have a reddish colour and the sappy tannins and pink hues are imported in the wine. The wine completes ferment and is aged in a 2000L wooden barrel it is the blended with 10% carbonic fermented pinot noir.
