Tasting notes:
Delicate peach hue. Constant stream of fine bubbles. Appealing aroma of candied apple, citrus pith and light flinty, limestone nuance. Distinctly fruity whie peach and apple entry. Fresh vibrance and crips crunch of acidity to balance the ripe fruitiness. Rounded, creamy, broad and textured int he mouth. Elegant and statuesque. Its long aftertaste finishes on a light lemon zest note.

Winemaker's comments:
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
