2009 Chardonnay Barrel Fermented

Wine of Origin: Stellenbosch
Blend: 100% Chardonnay
Barrel ageing: 100% French oak for six months
Maturation: 6 – 9 years from date of vintage

The grapes were handpicked from vineyards on Mulderbosch. After 3 hours skin contact they were pressed.  The juice was settled overnight and then racked to French oak barriques with 3% of the lees. After 4 days the wine started spontaneous fermentation at 16° – 25° C. The wine underwent no malolactic fermentation and was left on the gross lees for six months, during which the barrels were rolled once a month. After barrel maturation the wine was lightly fined, filtered and then bottled.

Perfect with thai food; grilled crayfish with lemon and garlic butter; or duck liver pate; veal or pork fillet in a creamy sauce; fresh grilled tuna; Karoo lamb; prosciutto ham or as a meal on its own!

Our Winemakers’ Tasting Notes

A triad of tangerine, oatmeal and jasmine on the nose. Elements of ripe, fragrant peach follow through on to the palate layered with orange blossom and a delicate contrast of savoury seashell-minerality. A prominent acidity ensures a vibrancy and freshness which is perfectly balanced by a mouth-filling texture.
