Fresh and lively this Chardonnay has great depth of flavour.
This is a food wine with a percentage of the juice fermented in oak barrels. Well balanced and fruity

Description

Grapes for this wine were sourced from select vineyard sites in Robertson and Swartland. The vines range in age from 9 to 22 years.
The limestone and decomposed shale soils of Robertson yield wines of great acidity which combine zesty tropical fruit flavors with a flinty, mineral character.
The Swartland portion from soils with a sandy top layer over loamy sub-layers lends citrus hints and a distinct minerality.
The grapes were picked in the cool early morning hours to maintain the freshness of the fruit. They were de-stemmed, left in cold skin contact for four hours and then gently pressed. The juice was settled overnight before fermentation, which occurred in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels. The wine was left on its lees for several months to develop further in complexity.
Bright tropical fruit aromas lead to a crisp, concentrated palate of apple, pear, honey and pineapple. A subtle kiss of oak adds a soft butterscotch nuance and wonderful depth.
Food Match: A match for a wide range of dishes.
