The 2.0ha planting of Chenin Blanc is the oldest on the farm. Established in 1973, this single block is also one of the oldest in South Africa still used for vinification.

Situated in a cooler pocket of the farm with a southerly aspect and alongside a dam, the soils seldom require additional irrigation during the hot summer months. In special years the block is prone to a touch of carefully monitored Botrytis infection that promotes the production of high quality, intricately complex wine.
