Tasting Notes

Bright gold with youthful flashes of green. Tropical pineapple and honey melon aromas explode on entry yielding cohesive delicate lemon lime flavours tinged with subtle oak complexity and a generous yet graceful zesty fruit finish.

Ageing Potential

Drinking well now but may develop further honeyed richness for up to 3 years.

Blend Information

100% Chardonnay

Food Suggestions

Enjoy in the freshness of youth with full flavoured firm fish with herb or creamy sauces, pan fried veal picatta, roast chicken or creamy pasta dishes.

In The Vineyard

Fermented on the skins at 24 - 28°C until dry. After pressing, the young wine was allowed to complete malolactic fermentation on French oak staves, then left for a further 3 months of wood maturation. Final blending and bottling takes place at our cellars in Wellington. Wine of origin Western Cape (Robertson, Worcester)

In The Cellar

Every vineyard block is vinified separately in appointed cellars under the explicit direction of our Oenologist. Fermentation took place in stainless steel between 14°C - 16°C. 80% fermented on French oak staves for subtle oak nuances before racking. 10% fermented on American oak and the remaining component was left completely unoaked. The young wine was left on the fine lees for further complexity and integration before final blending and bottling at our cellars in Wellington.
