More Information

In the cellar

The grapes were lightly crushed and gently pressed. The juice was transferred to two stainless steel fermenters where it underwent spontaneous fermentation (wild ferment). The two tanks ran at different temperatures one at 13 degrees and the other at 18 degrees. The wine was not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation and was left on the lees until bottling took place.

In the vineyard

The vines for this wine are grown on the lower slopes of the Simonsberg, the fruit is grown in alluvial soils with high quartz content. We believe this adds to the complexity mineral character of the wine.

Ageing

This wine was made to enjoy now, however, if stored in the correct conditions it can age for a further six years.

Cultivar

Chardonnay

Food Pairing

This wine pairs well with lighter dishes such as salads, fish and oysters.
