2013 SANS BARRIQUE CHARDONNAY

2011 SANS BARRIQUE CHARDONNAY



Vintage 2013 has proved itself to be a stellar year for white wines and our un-oaked, Sans Barrique Chardonnay captures support from those who enjoy the flinty clean character of Chablis and liked-styled wines.

The rich character of this wine stems from the clay based soils at the wonderful vineyard location of the Elandskloof Valley of Villiersdorp. Heavy clay and stony soils, non-irrigated with an excellent winter chill compliment contributes to its confirmed flavour profile.

Clean fruit flavours of green apple, gooseberry and guava present a classically straight forward and austere taste profile. Yeast flavours and an organic mineral quality arising from small harvest of concentrated fruit add to its complexity and aging ability. An excellent accompaniment to lobster and other shell fish, or sushi.
