A classy Chardonnay with flinty minerality and purity and restraint. A citrus core with ripe apple, pear, and delicate tropical notes, produces a wine with great poise. Extended time on the lees adds nutty and toasty notes. Intense yet delicate right through to the finish.

Wine Style:

White- Buttery and Complex

Tasting Notes:

A pure and fresh wine with aromas of pear, white peach and citrus and a balanced flavour of apple, pear and citrus. Lengthy resting on the lees has added overtones of nuts, toast and buttery at the back.

Gastronomy:

Perfect for chicken, pasta, cream sauce or grilled shrimps.

Winemaking process:

Grapes were harvested at 23.5 degrees Balling in early February. Harvesting was done only in the early morning. De-stemming took place and the juice separated from skins using a bag press. Settling took place overnight at a temperature of approx 12 degrees C. The clear juice was inoculated and fermented for almost 4 weeks at a temperature of approx 15 degrees C. After completion of fermentation, it was left on the primary lees for another month in order to add more weight and complexity to the wine.

Interesting notes:

The grapes are sourced from bush vines around the False Bay area and fermented with wild yeast and minimal intervention. The cool coastal breeze which sweeps off the Indian Ocean temper the ripening process, extend the growing season and produce expressive wines with more precise varietal characters and purity. These lifted aromas make the wines accessible, perfectly balanced and full-flavoured
