VINIFICATION

The Chardonnay grapes come from the valley of Robertsvlei in Franschhoek. With temperatures of up to 5°C colder than the Franschhoek valley floor, this is ideal for the cultivation of this noble variety.  Open canopies allow for sunshine to yellow the bunches and concentrate the fruity flavours.  A longer ripening period and moderate rainfall results in grapes filled with concentrated fruit flavours.

Matured for 11 months in 50% first fill, 30% second fill and 20% third fill 500L French oak barrels.

 

STYLE

An elegant, full bodied wine with outstanding fruit and wood integration.  Experience citrus, almonds and creamy notes on the nose, with nuances of vanilla.  The wine has a focused acidity on the palate with an elegant, lingering finish.

 

SERVING SUGGESTION

Enjoy this beautiful wine with smoked fish and creamy seafood dishes.  Also works well with roasted pork or chicken.
