Chardonnay grapes were hand harvested from blocks 2C, 11 and 16D resting on South facing slopes consisting of Oakleaf and Tukulu soil types. These sites are on the foothills of Sir Lowry’s Mountain Pass and exhibit a unique maritime influence. Elevated at 250m above sea level with a proximity of 7Km from the eastern side of the false bay coastline, cooling coastal winds and extreme diurnal fluctuations allow for longer ripening periods while still maintaining high natural acidity and very apparent salinity.

Grapes are subjected to a combination of whole bunch and destemmed pressing. Only free run juice was used to produce this wine which was cold settled before being transferred into a combination of French oak barrels (10% new, 70% second and third fill), concrete eggs (12%) and clay amphoras (8%) for fermentation and maturation. An extended lees contact of 9months with regular battonage was exercised to incorporate mouthfeel. Only 10% malolactic fermentation was allowed to retain balanced acidity, zestiness and freshness. The wine was stabilized using bentonite and is vegan friendly, bottled on 13 February 2023.

Clear and bright, straw with a hint of green. The wine shows delicate citrus fruit and orange blossom characteristics. This is a fruit forward wine with a smooth pallet and zesty finish due to restrained malolactic fermentation. Well balanced with subtle lactone notes providing layered complexity. The natural incorporation of mineral and saline notes promises a unique coastal style Chardonnay which will reward patient cellaring. Drink now with potential aging until 2027.
