Serruria Chardonnay

2015

Serruria Chardonnay
In the Vineyard

Elandskloof is the most recently proclaimed wine ward within the Overberg district - and it's where these high altitude Chardonnay plantings can be found. The vines are located on the slopes of the Stettyn mountains outside Villiersdorp, at a height of 700- and 900m above sea level. A combination of winter snowfalls, moderate summer temperatures and cool nights makes for wines with freshness and length.

 

Winemaking

In the cellar, the grapes are cooled to below 14 degrees Celsius. Bunches were hand sorted and whole bunch pressed. Some of the fermentation took place in stainless steel and ended in large format, old 600 French oak barrels while the rest was fermented in old 1500 wooden tanks. Ageing was determined by a taste for optimal balance and after just over 11 months in wood and on the fine lees, it was removed and bottled.

Tasting Notes

Slightly shy nose of orange zest with a delicate brush of white flowers. Bright, tangy citrus vibrancy on the palate. A wine with gravitas and power, it has a rich, weighty mid-palate. The creamy oak is seamlessly integrated and meshes with the fruit harmoniously - so gentle and understated. Redined and lengthy tail.
