The balance of the fresh citrus fruits and rich melon characters give the wine a full rounded palate that combines well with the subtle creaminess and nuttiness of the gentle oak. The natural acidity follows through to a fresh and clean finish.

Cellar

Twenty percent of the blend was fermented on wood and the balance in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 12°C for 19 days. Wine was left on the lees for 80 days to add complexity. Twenty percent of the wine was matured on French oak for 6 months.

Harvest

Grapes were harvested at a very ripe stage between 23,5° - 25°B from a selection of vineyards in the Robertson Valley.

Vineyard

Chardonnay is an early ripening variety and the first Chardonnay grapes were harvested and brought to the cellar during the first week of February. Our Chardonnay vines are mostly planted higher on the foothills of the mountains, on gravelly Karoo soils with some clay and lime fractions. The high lime content ensures a healthy well-drained growing medium for our vines. It also ensures that the expression of Chardonnay character is enhanced.
