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. Row and bunch selection of this single block make it possible to produce this Single Block Chenin Blanc. 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.

The Indian Ocean is less than 20km away, and gentle afternoon sea breezes drift over the farm and exert a cooling influence against the late afternoon Cape sun.
