Varieties
100% Chardonnay

Winemaking
Grapes were harvested from a young vineyard of 8 years old, situated on sandy loam soils. The vineyard is drip irrigated and trained to a single cordon single foliage wire. Fruit was harvested between 12 - 13 Be. The Chardonnay grapes are harvested at night during the coolest period of the day. The grapes are lightly crushed ensuring that the free run juice extraction contains minima phenolics. The juice is fermented on French oak staves to give complexity to the varietal fruit flavours. The wine is allowed to remain on oak and ferment on lees for 4 months. This helps to add fullness and mouthfeel to the palate.

Tasting Note
This classic Chardonnay shows green apple, ripe melon fruit and balanced acidity, making this a very enjoyable and versatile white wine. Ricj creamy texture that finishes with a clean fresh acid.

Serving Suggestion
Excellent as an aperitif, or serve lightly chilled with salads, creamy pasta dishes, white meats, especially chicken or fish.
