Harvest

100% Chardonnay 2014

Bot River, Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa.

10 000 Bottles

VINEYARD DETAIL:

Chardonnay vineyards planted on deep riverside soil in E/W direction.

HARVEST DETAIL:

Handpicked at 19°B for fruit and elegance and high natural acidity.

CELLAR:

Produced in a Méthode Cap Classique cellar, Paarl

CELLAR TREATMENT:

My philosophy is vigilant attention and consideration in the vineyard with minimal but concise intervention in

cellar, allowing each vintage to express itself from grape to bottle.

Whole bunch pressing ensuring quality juice. 3 years yeast contact time before disgorgement

TASTING NOTES:

Delicate and generous bubbles with crisp aromas of lime blossom, white peach and honeydew melon.

Vibrant and supple upon entry with rounded and expressive flavours of toasty finesse lending to a lingering

finish.
