Wine Information
Winemaker Neil Bruwer
Variety Chardonnay
BlendPercent 100% Chardonnay
Ageing Prime drinking begins at 3­ - 4 years, although top vintages remain impressive for up to 10 years.
Cellar The harvested grapes are de­stemmed, gently crushed and undergo cold­ maceration for 6 hours. Natural, spontaneous fermentation occurs in 225ℓ French Allier barriques, the fermentation taking up to 3 weeks. The wine remains on the lees where it undergoes malolactic fermentation, the lees stirred periodically through the wine in what is known as batonnage. The Chardonnay Reserve is kept in barrels for 14 months and 20% is matured in Nomblot eggs. Only the best barrels are considered for the final blend.
