Technical notes
A portion of the handpicked grapes were whole bunch pressed, while the remainder was de-stemmed, crushed and left in contact with the skins for 12 hours before pressing. The wine underwent fermentation in 225 liter French oak vats (80% 2nd and 3rd fill, 20% new French oak) and was aged in barrel for 18 months.

Bayten (formerly known as Buitenverwachting) was part of the original Constantia estate founded in 1685 by Simon van der Stel, the first governor of the Dutch Colony at the Cape. One of South Africa’s premier estates, this beautiful farm is situated on the east-facing slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg Mountain, just south of Cape Town and a few miles from False Bay. Today under the guidance of current proprietor Lars Maack, the winery has earned a reputation as the source of some of South Africa’s most exquisite, mineral-tinged white wines. Bayten is a Dutch word that means ”beyond expectation.” Cellarmaster Herman Kirschbaum and winemaker Brad Paton continue to craft stunning wines that deliver on that promise to exhilarate the senses.
