This is the fourth release of our Barrel Select Chardonnay. A Barrel selection of wines that show a unique identity.
Handpicked in the last week of January from 29 year old single vineyard block.
IN THE CELLAR
Overnight cold storage of the grapes preserved the fresh fruity character during whole bunch pressing. After settling, the clear juice was racked off its gross lees into 600L 2nd fill Francois Frere barrels. Fermented and aged in barrel for 12 months.
Each of our wines is linked to a specific flower – the characteristics of the wine are symbolized by that particular flower on the label.
Clivia miniata (Buttercup)
The bright yellow colour of the Clivia is synonymous with our lively Chardonnay and Buttercup is a perfect description of its character.
