Cellar

Minimal intervention with fortnightly battonage following the completion of primary fermentation. Only a 20% portion allowed to complete malolactic fermentation in order to preserve the chiseled and athletic provenance of the wine. The wooding regime adopted meant a new wood component of 30% with the balance in second, third and fourth fill barrels. Staying true to the Burgundian roots of the Chardonnay grapes, all the wood selected was sourced from Burgundian coopers. The wine was prepared for bottling after 8 months in wood.

Variety Chardonnay
Vineyard

This is a cool area, situated 12 - 20 km from the sea, with mean February (ripening stage) temperatures of 19 -  20°C. Soils are predominantly ferruginous (iron rich) gravel on highly weathered, soft Bokkeveld Group shale, situated at 200-300 m altitude and surrounded by Table Mountain sandstone mountains at heights of about 500 - 1 000m, sheltering the area from the often extremely strong south-easterly winds in summer.
Chardonnay Clone CY96 on 101-14 Mgt root stock.
