Vinification:
The vines used to produce this fruit forward unwooded Chardonnay comprises out of 5 different clones each adding its own character to the final wine. Grapes were harvested at three different stages to give natural complexity and were fermented separately with three specific Chardonnay yeast strains which enhanced the floral, pear, apricot and lime aromas in the wine. The wines were fermented between 13-160C for 14-21 days. The wines are kept on the fine sediment (lees) until bottling to keep them fresh and add weight on the middle palate.

 

The price stated is per bottle. There are 6 bottles in a case or you are welcome to create your own personalised mixed case. Please note that your case needs to include wines from the same farm as cases are shipped directly from the vineyard to you.
