ageing : Drink now, but will improve with further maturation.

in the vineyard : 100% Vergelegen Chardonnay. First time that only our grapes were used for a standard label. The grapes were all sourced from Vergelegens Premium Vineyards located on South/South West facing slopes. The soils are Helderberg granite and Clovelly.

in the cellar : No skin contact is employed. 30% of total volume were whole bunched pressed, the remainder destemmed, crushed and pressed. Juice recovery amounted to 585 l/tpn, which indicates the extremely gentle handling. After settling overnight, the juice was racked to 225 l French barrels for fermentation. 100% of the wine was barrel fermented and matured on the lees of 7 months.
