Leopards Leap Chardonnay 2014

Wine Style: A surprisingly voluptuous, medium-bodied, unwooded Chardonnay made in a New World style.
Nose: Subtle aromas of grapefruit and lime are beautifully balanced by biscuit nuances. 
Palate: Well-rounded, the palate reveals flavours of ripe yellow apple, supported by undertones of spice that provide a unique aftertaste.

Chardonnay is renowned for being one of the most versatile food wines. The well integrated acidity of this wine complement a wide variety of white wine based dishes and serves as a companion to creamy sauces, roast chicken and citrus infused duck.

in the vineyard : The grapes came from the Robertson region. Vineyards grow in soils with a relatively higher pH due to the lime content, which is ideal for growing Chardonnay grapes.

in the cellar : The grapes were whole-bunch pressed, settled and cold-fermented at 15°C. Extended lees contact yielded the unique firm structure of this wine.
