2017 CHARDONNAY

2017 CHARDONNAY

The 2017 vintage was remarkable thanks to the joint
affect of dry weather conditions and persistent wind
throughout the growing season. The wind factor served
to both decrease average temperatures and lower night
time temperatures which resulted in very well balanced
acidity in the grapes at harvest. Judging by the intensity
of flavour in the 2017 wines, it seems there was also a
mild concentration effect as a result of the conditions
mentioned above. The 2017 Mulderbosch Chardonnay
was produced from vineyards in Stellenbosch ranging in
location from False Bay through to the Polkadraai and
Bottelary Hills on a mixture of soil types derived from
decomposed Table Mountain granite and Malmesbury
shales.

Our Winemakers’ Tasting Notes

Typical Chardonnay aromas of ripe peach and subtle, yet
spicy oak notes are offset by fine mineral notes which
provide the nose lift and freshness. The palate has vibrant
energy and is filled with delicious stone fruit flavours and
creamy texture due to maturation on lees. Concentrated
and intense, the wine is nonetheless fresh and inviting
with a long and flavoursome finish.
