In The Vineyard
Grapes are sourced from Fairtrade certified vineyards predominantly in the Swartland region. These vineyards are trellised and grow on oak leave soil. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 7 tons per hectare.
Last week of February
Grapes were handpicked very early in the morning allowing the fruit to retain their natural flavor. Only the free run juice was used, allowed to settle and inoculated with selected yeast strain, fermenting under controlled conditions at 12 °C. Wine was fermented in French oak for 2 months.
This un-oaked Chardonnay style is well rounded and combines layers of rich red apple aromas and juicy pineapple flavors. It has some citrus and vanilla on the aftertaste. Well balanced with a clean fresh finish.
