This delicate Chardonnay strikes the perfect balance between fruit flavours and a light touch of oak.
– Serve well chilled
– Pairs well with shellfish & vegetable dishes.
Pale straw in appearance, this wine has marmalade, pineapple and butterscotch aromas on the nose, with hints of citrus, lime and peach flavours on the palate.
From selected vineyards in the Agter-Paarl region. Approximately 50% bush vine (untrellised) and 50% trellised vineyards.
Soils are mainly Malmesbury Shale without irrigation, producing naturally low yields of ripe, flavourful grapes. Shale soils add a touch of elegant minerality and cleansing acidity.
Fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks (±80%) and American & French oak (±20%). To preserve freshness, the tank fermented portion had no malolactic fermentation.
Maturation & Oaking
Barrel maturation with lees stirring for 3 months. Tank maturation for 6 months. After 6 months, both portions are blended together before bottling.
