Description

A minimalist, non-interventionist winemaking approach, geared to reflect sense of place and expression of terroir, was adopted. It is 100% barrel fermented and carefully matured in specially selected small French oak barriques sourced exclusively from Burgundian coopers. Fortnightly batonnage was employed throughout the 10 month maturation period. The result is a Chardonnay that is New World in provenance but Old World in stylistic leaning. A chiselled, focussed wine that effortlessly manages to be both subtle and intense. At its core is a piercing expression of grapefruit, white peach, ripe pear and grilled hazel nuts aromas and flavours. The palate is penetrating and profound yet graceful and poised. A forceful mineral acidity is beautifully balanced by a subtle yet compelling intensity of fruit. A classic length, creaminess and intriguing complexity define this stylish, world class Chardonnay.

Winemaker’s Notes

This wine is the seamless product of some truly unique, extreme and radical vineyard sites situated in the Hemelen-Aarde area. Soils from these sites are derived from the Bokkeveld shale group, which are characteristically low-vigour, clay-rich and stony.  Because of the cool climate that exists there, the grapes were required to hang long on the vine in order to reach optimum ripeness. Picked during the early hours of the morning during midMarch 2010, the grapes were already safely in the cellar by mid-morning thus ensure that all the exciting fruit flavours of the grapes were preserved to be eventually reflected in this wine.
