About This Wine
The wine displays ripe citrus, granny smith apple and freshly buttered toast. The palate is precise and well-defined by vibrant acidity with perfect texture in the mid-palate and a beautiful long finish. Any chardonnay lover's dream wine! Fermented in 500 L puncheons, 15% were new and solely indigenous yeast from the vineyard.
The growing season wrapped up with exceptionally clean fruit and low yields that developed excellent concentration and # avour. January through March was hot and dry with little rainfall and combined with the low yields meant harvest started earlier than usual. It also allowed picking decisions to be made in the vineyard on # avour and reaching optimum ripeness. Enjoy over the next 8+ years in the right conditions.
Great to pair with savoury dishes such as goats cheese, ceviche, smoked trout and pungent wash-rind cheeses.
