John Platter 2017 - 3*

ageing : 3-6 years

in the vineyard : This vineyard is situated on the banks of the Berg River where the macro/ micro climate is best suited for the production of premium Chardonnay. Organically produced on a 3-wire trellised system with drip irrigation, the vineyard is managed with different cover crops, vetches and organic mulching to stimulate healthy soil microbial activity. Strict pruning and green leaf management are essential for pest and disease control and optimal leaf shading during the ripening of the fruit.

about the harvest: YIELD PER HA - Average 12 tons/ha a

in the cellar : Fermented with a selection of staves at temperatures between 14° and 16° C. This ensured that the fruit flavours were retained in the wine after fermentation while lending a sturdy, clean and integrated wood character.
