Pure unoaked Chardonnay from the Western Cape.
SKU: SAB177 | Category: White
How it's made
The Chardonnay grapes for this unoaked wine are sourced from long established vineyards on the Wellington/Swartland borders of the Western Cape. This area receives little rainfall and the soil is a mixture of alluvial riverbed stones, decomposed granite and shale. The vines are low-trellised and the grapes are picked by hand in the early hours of the morning to retain their freshness. On arrival to the winery, grapes are chilled and the juice settled in tank prior to fermentation. A proportion of the grapes are full bunch pressed, the rest are de-stemmed and cold fermented. We keep the wine on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks for as long as possible prior to bottling.
Grilled white fish and seafood, roast chicken, pasta with cream and mushrooms.
Fresh, tangy stone fruit and pear on the nose with a hint of jasmine. All this fruit follows through on the palate, just with more intensity and length. There is real breadth and character in this wine that follows through to a refreshing finish.
