100% Chardonnay - a big wine for special occasions. A classy, sleek structure with subtle citrus fruit softened with textured creaminess makes it ideal for creamy dishes. Delicious with fresh and roasted nuts or sushi. Grapes were cold pressed and fermentation was started in stainless steel tanks. On the third day after fermentation started the wine was transferred into 300-litre French oak barrels – 50% new and 50% second fill. After fermentation, the wine was kept on the primary lees for about three to four months and was batonnaged every three weeks. It was then racked and went back into the barrels for another eight months, totalling 12 months, and then bottled. Ready to be enjoyed within the year of production, but will mature well for the next four to six years.
