This Chardonnay is elegant with layered nuances of vanilla, peaches and honeycomb. A hint of minerality adds to a long, lingering finish.
From Delaire Graff Estate mountain vineyards, the grapes were handpicked in the early hours over various ripening periods. Picking criteria was based on flavour to ensure optimal sugar concentration and balance of acidity.
Extensive bunch sorting of the grapes formed part of the qualitymanagement process. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented for 14 days. Maturation took place in 225 litre 40% new French barrels for 10 months. No batonage or malolactic fermentation took place, in order to retain freshness.
