Dry Chardonnay (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older
A complex chardonnay , rich in character, giving ripe pears and green apples on the nose. Partial wooding gives this wine the edge and to show the beautiful tropical fruit and limy character. Slight buttery character showing on the palate.
Grapes come from Stellenbosch and Elgin. Stellenbosch was tank fermented while Elgin was in second fill barrels.
25% of the wine was in second fill barrels and on the lees for 8 months while the rest was on the lees in the tank.
This wine can pair well with rich foods too and can go well on its own.
