R 180.00

VINTAGE CHARACTERISTICS

Severe weather fluctuations during bud break and flowering, followed by cool windy conditions contributed to less and uneven bunches and smaller berries. White wines have shown good acidity and balanced flavour profiles while reds, despite the challenging season, have shown elegance.

VINEYARDS & HARVEST

From the Summercourt vineyards of the Banghoek Valley. The grapes were handpicked in the early hours.

GRAPE VARIETALS

100% Chardonnay

VINIFICATION

The grapes were whole bunch pressed and placed in stainless steel tanks to initiate the fermentation process until 50 percent complete. Juice was then moved to 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels where fermentation was completed. Wine was then left in barrel for two months, stirred and transferred to tank where it remained on primary lees six months for further maturation.

TASTING NOTES

Sumptuous and opulently juicy, the Summercourt Chardonnay offers bright, zesty white peach and tropical fruit which plays harmoniously on the palate and finishes with a refined minerality.
