Lemon and orange plus hints of nut, vanilla and spice on the nose. Good depth of fruit and intensity of fruit, lively acidity and a savoury finish. Generous and expressive rather than opulent.

VINIFICATION & VITICULTURAL DETAILS
The grapes were sourced from two 20-year-old, trellised Chardonnay vineyards both planted on Summercourt Farm, on the Simonsberg Mountain.  The higher altitude vineyard (400m) was picked first on 13 February and the one at lower altitude (350m) was picked on 27 February.
The grapes were handpicked, hand sorted and gently whole bunch pressed.  The juice was settled overnight at 10 degrees.  It then went to barrel for natural fermentation in 100% old French oak barrels (225l and 300l) followed by natural malolactic fermentation.  As little batonage as possible. 10 months total in oak.
