Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our Chardonnay opens with aromas of peach, grapefruit, and pear. A small percentage was aged in French oak barrels for 9 months, giving it a beautiful complexity with bright flavours of pineapple, lemon, and crisp pear. Best paired with grilled fish or sautéed prawns.
Vineyard Notes
79% Estate grown, 21% Boshoff Vineyard Similkameen
Winemaker Notes
The majority of the Chardonnay was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks; a smaller portion was fermented in new and neutral French oak barrels. Berries were whole cluster pressed and settled at ambient room temperature for 12 hours. After settling the juice was racked into barrels, where 50% of the filled barrels were inoculated with a pure yeast culture. The remaining barrels were left to ferment spontaneously. After fermentation wines were stirred twice a month to increase the wine's contact with the autolyzing yeast cells. Barrel aged 9 months.
