Description

Tasting Note

“Pale straw with a brilliant lime green hue in the glass, this wine offers crisp Granny Smith apple and ripe citrus aromas. The flavours are vivacious with supple layers of crème caramel, pineapple and white peach extending towards a textured aftertaste. Bright and vibrant in the bottle and your glass, this wine is filled with everything, but oak!”. (Johnnie Calitz – winemaker)

Wine of Origin

Simonsberg-Paarl

In the Vineyard

A selection of fruit was made from high-quality Simonsberg-Paarl vineyards grown in decomposed granite soils. Exacting vineyard management ensured superior fruit concentration and bold flavours from yields of 9 to 11 tons per hectare. Blocks were picked separately, depending on phenolic ripeness, so as to reveal Chardonnay grapes of character, complexity and balance which reflect our terroir and climate.

In the Cellar

Destemmed grapes provided for more “pulp” to work with than conventional pressing. To amplify the texture and development of this vintage, the wine spent over 9 months on its fine lees. Fermentation and maturation were undertaken in Nomblot “egg” tanks. These inhibit oxidation, and improve the aging potential of a wine, while encouraging a creamier mouthfeel.
