WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

Our lightly wooded 2018 vintage is an elegant, full-bodied wine with outstanding fruit and wood integration. Experience citrus, almonds and creamy notes with nuances of vanilla. The wine has focused acidity on the palate with an elegant fruit driven, and slight mineral lingering finish supported by the oak.

VINIFICATION

The Chardonnay grapes come from the Robertsvlei valley in Franschhoek. With temperatures of up to 5°C cooler than the Franschhoek valley floor, this is ideal for the cultivation of this noble variety. A longer ripening period, moderate rainfall and open canopies allow the sunshine to yellow the grapes resulting in concentrated fruit flavours.The wine was matured for 11 months in 50% first fill, 30% second fill and 20% third fill 500L French oak barrels.

 

SERVING SUGGESTION

Sip this beautifully textured wine with smoked fish and creamy  seafood dishes.  It also works well with roasted pork or chicken.
