Notes: Chardonnay is the world’s favourite grape variety with its long popularity stemming from itsversatility. As a variety it takes well to oak or can produce unwooded fruit styles which, depending on the wine can be drunk while young or develops further with age. It’s versatility also extends to food matching which makes it a great accompaniment to most meals. Harvested at night, the chardonnay was crushed and pressed and the resultant juice was clarified. Fermentation was conducted in stainless steel tanks using a select yeast strain. Light use of oakhas added creaminess and vanillin, giving the wine more depth and weight.
