The pride of GlenWood from the second oldest Chardonnay block in South Africa. Smooth and buttery with smokey peach and vanilla on the palate.

Well-integrated oak from 2 years in 100% new French Oak barrels. A wine for a real Chardonnay connoisseur.

Description

Situated in the Franschhoek valley where vineyards have been planted since the late 1600s, when exiled French Huguenots brought their viticultural know-how to their new home in South Africa.

Grapes were picked at 24.9°B and whole-bunch pressed to 1.4 bars of pressure. The juice was left to settle for two days and racked to barrel. Using only wild yeast, fermentation occurred over a one month period. The wine spent 24 months on the lees in 100% new, 300l and 500l French oak barrels.

Drink now, or within 7 to 10 years from vintage.
