Tasting Notes:

Eye-catching faint salmon pink hue. Bubbles rise in a consistent vigorous, lively stream. Gentle berry notes on the nose – strawberry and raspberry with a slight cream and biscuit nuance. The palate is vibrant and lively with crisp berry fruit flavours – raspberries and strawberries that are still a touch tart – but deliciously so. Lovely ruby grapefruit and lime zest flavour balancing the berries. The wine is rounded, fleshy and long with a zippy, well-defined finish.

The Altima (Elandskloof) vineyards which make up the biggest part of the vintage blend soils for the Chardonnay and the Pinot noir consist of Tukulu and decomposed shale (Greywacke).

Most of the soils suitable for farming in the Elandskloof valley are situated on steep slopes. The Altima vineyards - which make up the biggest part of the non-vintage blend soils for the Chardonnay and the Pinot noir - are planted on the following soils: Quartz sandstone, which belongs to the Table Mountain Sandstone group, is found on the higher-lying mountains. Good decomposed shale soils, from the Malmesbury group of soils, are predominant on the farm. These soils usually have dark brown topsoil, with a yellow-brown structure and less sandstone subsoil. They tend to have a high water-retention capacity, are high in organic matter and usually have no chemical limitation, resulting in vigorous growth. Lower in the valley and along the rivers are dark alluvial soils, which also deliver very vigorous growth. These are not suitable for wine grape production, due to growth being too vigorous, coupled with a high risk of rot. The Pinot noir vineyards trellising system is unique. These are the only high altitude Pinot noir vineyards in South Africa planted using the posted vine method ("stok by paaltjie"). The Chardonnay vineyards trellising system is vertical shoot positioning.

Secondary bottle fermentation followed and the wine remained on the lees for 24 months before disgorgement. After disgorgement, the wine was left for 5 months under cork before shipment. 

Produced in the Anthonij Rupert Méthode Cap Classique Cellar, La Garonne, Franschhoek. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were picked at ±19.5°Balling and were whole-bunch pressed together. Just two cellars in the world follow this method. Only the highest quality juice (tête de cuvee) was settled overnight for fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 14-16°C. The fermented portions were selected for finesse and elegance. Secondary bottle fermentation followed and the wine remained on the lees for 24 months before disgorgement. After disgorgement, the wine was left for 5 months under cork before shipment. The world class Anthonij Rupert Méthode Cap Classique Cellar is especially unique, as it has all the riddling, disgorging, bottling and labelling facilities housed in the same building.
