2015 was a very early season with early flowering dates followed by rapid ripening in the early part of the summer. Weather conditions during the ripening period of the Chardonnay were cool to begin with, with very warm conditions close to harvest, necessitating a rapid harvest decision. Fruit quality was perfect with no disease. Optimally ripe fruit with no raisins were harvested around 23º balling.
VINIFICATION AND MATURATION
The grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. Juice was transferred to French oak barrels with no settling. Fermentation occurred naturally in French oak barrels of which 66% was new.
The wine was then aged on the gross lees for 9 months after which a barrel selection was done, with the selected portion being aged for a further 3 months. The wine was bottled with no cold stabilsation and minimal filtration.
|Total acid||6.3 g/l|
Dry Whites are very versatile and are best suited to foods that are higher in acidity (vinaigrettes etc.) or in fat – the natural acidity in the wines will cut through the foods.
They are perfect accompanied by:
Fresh and Roasted Vegetables
Fish and Shellfish
