Signature Chardonnay 2015

This Chardonnay is crisp, creamy and fruity, elegantly wooded and ideal with fish, mussels or calamari.

SOIL

Soil and subsoil from various regions of the Western Cape: Clovelly, Estcourt, Kroonstad, Alluvial & Glenrosa.

Tasting Notes

Grape fruit, lime, yellow apple, banana, pear and hints of vanilla and butterscotch on the nose. The palate is creamy with layered fruit, pleasant acidity and good balance.

Vinification

Grapes were hand-harvested from selected vineyard blocks and received at cellar, de-stemmed, slightly crushed and pressed. Juice of the individual block selections (some separate and some blended) were then temperature-control fermented, in stainless steel tanks, with selected yeast strains. Only the best tanks were selected for the final preparation of the blend. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for two months prior preparation for bottling. 5% of the grapes were fermented in new French oak barrels.

Serving Suggestion

Serve well-chilled. Ideal with pan-fried salmon in a lemon butter sauce
