A mouth waltering chardonnay, great with seafood and amazing with pork.

 

HARVEST

Our chardonnay grapes are specially sourced from the Helderberg and Stellenbosch regions and harvested in the cool of the morning to ensure the grapes arrive in our cellar at optimum temperature. A great healthy harvest overall.

 

COLOUR

Light gold.

 

NOSE

Matured in new and used oak, has a bright, sparky nose with nuances of citrus, white blossom and hints of peaches.

 

PALATE

The extended lees contact adds a creaminess and complexity, presenting an appealing palette length. Ripe apple, summer melon, honey with crisp subtle lime finish.

 

TECHNICAL DATA

Analysis: Alc: 14.37% • TA: 5.5 g/l • RS: 1.3 g/l • pH: 3.46

 

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Our Chardonnay was picked in the early morning and immediately pressed as whole bunches. The pressed grape juice was placed in 225 litre French oak barrels (50% new barrels, 30% 2nd fill and the balance 3rd fill for fermentation). This Chardonnay was 100% barrel fermented with extended lees contact and daily batonnage. As a result, the wine delivers a naturally fresh, creamy and crisp palate.

 

FOOD PAIRING

Great with seafood, poultry & pork
