KWV Classic Collection Chardonnay 2014

This elegantly styled Chardonnay shows orange blossom, peach and lime aromas on the nose, with undertones of minerality. The palate is chalky with hints of peach followed by a creamy, lingering finish.

ageing : This wine can be enjoyed now, or cellared for up to 20 months from vintage.

in the vineyard : Rain during the growing season caused vigorous growth and high disease pressure with colder spring temperatures and late flowering. Cooler early summer conditions lead to harvest commencing late by up to two weeks on early cultivars. Warmer conditions through early summer brought vintage back on schedule, followed by some cold spells which lead to a longer ripening period. Overall the quality is better than 2013 and developing well in the cellar.

about the harvest: Grapes were harvested in February.

in the cellar : Maturation
A 40% portion of the wine was matured in oak for four months.
