Artisan Chardonnay | Semillon 2017
The wine was fermented in 500 – litre second-fill, third-fill and older barrels and matured on fine lees for 10 months prior to bottling. A small percentage of tank – fermented Semillon was blended back for freshness. No malolactic fermentation were allowed.
Aromatic aromas of green apple, pear and stone fruit are present. A distinct minerality with a sligth earthiness is an expression of the cooler climate. A wine with great longevity – the lanolin and other tertiary flavours will develop over time.
The wine was fermented in 225 liter barrels and matured on fine lees for 9 months prior to bottling. Both chenin and semillon are from our Elgin blocks. The wine underwent no malolactic fermentation.
