Artisan Chardonnay

Bottle Number: 197

The Vrede en Lust Artisan range is an exclusive selection of carefully hand-crafted wines.

In producing this range the wine-makers are encouraged to experiment with different styles and wine-making techniques, using small batches of site-specific grapes.

Next to our Semillon vineyards, we have a very small planting of Chardonnay. This is our maiden release of this wine from Elgin. It has been blended with a percentage of cool-climate Viognier and only seven barrels of this wine were produced.

Tasting Notes

The wine is barrel fermented and aged on the lees. Fresh citrus, lemongrass and hints of floral notes are found on the nose. Typical mineral and cooler climate flavours on the palate with a classical lingering aftertaste.

Winemaker's Notes

The grapes were harvested at 23 Balling and fermented in 225-litre barrels. No new oak was used, in order to enhance the fruitier aspect of the variety. Malolactic fermentation was also limited.
