Signature Collection Chardonnay

Slightly tart, whimsically tropical and ever-so creamy, this lively Chardonnay is sure to become a favourite. Perfectly matched with lemon-butter salmon, it’ll also add pizzazz to a roast chicken dinner. Otherwise, enjoy it on its lonesome (or with camembert and crackers) when it’s time to watch the tennis.

TASTING NOTE
Lively grapefruit and lime on the nose with hints of apple, peach and pear. The palate is creamy with layered fruit, pleasant lingering acidity and minerality

APPEARANCE
Pale straw in colour with a green hue.

SERVE WITH
Serve well-chilled. Enjoy with roasted pork loin served with caramelised apples or duck and orange sauce.

ORIGIN
Western Cape

TERROIR / SOIL
Soil and subsoil from various regions of the Western Cape.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Trellised vines of between 14 and 22 years yielded the grapes for this wine. They received supplementary drip irrigation and produced 10 – 14 tons per hectare.

WINEMAKING
Grapes were hand-harvested from selected vineyard blocks and then de-stemmed, slightly crushed and pressed at the cellar. The 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 to preparation for bottling. 5% of the wine was barrel fermented in new French oak barrels to add complexity to the wine.
