Our Chardonnay grapes are specially sourced from two farms in the Helderberg and Stellenbosch regions. We hand select the rows which will be harvested in the cool of the morning to ensure the grapes arrive in our cellar at optimum temperature. The 2015 harvest was earlier than previous years due to the warm and hot summer.
Summery, straw coloured golden yellow.
Fermented and matured in a combination of new and used oak, the wine has a bright, almost flinty nose with white peach and yellow plum aromas. Hints of citrus and white flowers.
The palate is sumptuous with good weight in the mouth. Complex and elegant; tropical notes, freshly picked apricots, pineapple, a slight nuttiness and green lemons vie for attention; all matched with a keen line of acidity.
