Description

The Grapes
Selected from the best vineyards on Alvi’s Drift, most of the Chardonnay comes predominantly from ourolder vineyards which are planted on limestone-rich soils along the Breede River. Strong wind and frost were some of the challenges facing these vineyards this vintage, however, with some very early morning intervention by the team, the Chardonnay escaped the annual frost and has yielded fantastic fruit. Vineyards exhibiting the required character and complexity were identified for separate vinification for potential inclusion in this wine.

In The Cellar
Each selected vineyard is vinified in barrels which are pre-selected for diverse characteristics, representing a variety of cooperages, regions, and ages. Barrels include both historically proven and a portion of new, innovative barrels. The grapes are 100% barrel fermented using wild-yeast fermentation. Barrels are then individually tasted and blended to showcase the complexity and character of the terroir and vintage.

Tasting Note
A complex wine with a rich golden hue showing exuberant aromas of lemon, honeymelon and vanilla with a hint of toasted hazelnuts. Lush, ripe fruit follow through on the palate with an impeccable sugar and acid balance. An opulent, full bodied wine with a velvety mouthfeel.
