Estate | Chardonnay 2016

R150 / 750ml

The Bloemendal Estate Chardonnay is barrel fermented and aged. This is a complex wine with excellent wood and fruit integration. Citrus blossom aromas are permeated with soft layers of crème caramel and lime. Notes of lemon and a leesy complexity are present on the palate, alongside a well-balanced mineral touch on the finish.

Vinification

Grapes are hand-harvested from 23-year-old vines from the Southern slope of the Kanonberg mountain. The bunches are pressed whole and then left overnight with the enzyme. After removing from the lees, the juices are inoculated with selected yeast strains to begin fermentation in concrete tanks. As soon as fermentation starts, the wine is moved to 40% new and 60% second fill French oak barrels, where it is left to ferment for 11 months before bottling.
