White Gold is made from 100% estate Chardonnay grapes, that were whole cluster pressed to ensure that we extracted only the best juice from the berries. After settling the juice, the wine was racked into French oak barrels for fermentation. After fermentation, the lees were stirred once a month. The wine was aged in barrels for 8 months.
On the nose, honey, orange zest, toasted almond and tropical pineapple dominate the aromatic profile of our elegant White Gold. On the palate it shows a smooth creamy texture combined with a crisp acidity and flavours of ripe peaches and citrus. This full-bodied Chardonnay has a beautiful, long finish.
The ideal pairing is with decadent dishes such as lobster or bacon wrapped scallops. Or try a pasta in a creamy sauce or slow roasted chicken.
This wine is ready now and will peak by 2022. With proper cellaring, you can age this wine until 2026.
