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
