2009 MISSIONVALE CHARDONNAY

MISSIONVALE CHARDONNAY




A dry rewarding vintage for this Chardonnay, which is year by year recognized for its characteristic layered “seamless” quality.
 
The name originates from the historical mission hospital established by Moravian Missionary Peter Leitner who adopted this beautiful valley to establish a place of caring for the infirm – finally described as a leper colony.
 
A very distinctive and specific terroir component reflects true to type and the tradition of maintaining 30 % new best French Oak with a total of seven months maturation.
 
This wine presents pages of different taste sensations.  First creamy yeast, followed by mild wood tones surrounded by vanilla and aromatic layers of apricot and cantaloupe. Finally resonating a long citrus and quince finish.  Longevity and ageing will enhance completely!


Alcohol 13.5% Total Acid 5,9 g/L
Residual Sugar 2,0 g/L pH 3,35
