    Fleur Du Cap Unfiltered Chardonnay - 750ml

    Made with minimal interference from superior grapes meticulously selected from prized vineyard blocks, fleur du cap unfiltered wines are shaped in perfect harmony with nature. Handpicked in the vineyard and handcrafted in the cellar, these new generation wines capture the highly sought-after qualities of varietal character and terroir . Sedimentation, racking and fining as opposed to filtration maximise the preservation of colour and flavour elements resulting in wines that abound with fruit and flavour. Terroir climate, soil, altitude and slope orientation are selected to capture as much varietal character as possible. climate is mild with south and east facing slopes offering natural protection against late afternoon sun. Cooling breezes from the Atlantic ocean ensure rich, slow-growing crops. Soils are predominantly medium textured and well-drained with good water holding capacity. 

    The Vineyards: (Viticulturist: Bennie Liebenberg) 
    The grapes were harvested from one vineyard in the Robertson area and two in the Stellenbosch area. Pest and disease control was implemented according to South African subjective IPW guidelines. 

    The Wine Making: 
    (Cellar Master: Andrea Free borough, Winemaker: Pieter Badenhorst) The grapes were harvested between 23 and 25.5 degrees celsius balling. In the cellar fermentation was initiated in stainless steel tanks after the grapes were pressed and the juice was clarified. With a quarter of the fermentation done, the wine was transferred to 30% new, 30% 2nd fill and 40% 3rd fill barrels. Once fermentation was complete, the wine spent a total of 7 months in barrel to ensure a perfect marriage between the fruit and wood flavours. The different batches were tasted and only the best was selected for the final blend. A light fining was followed by settling to clarify the wine prior to bottling.

    Wine Maker's Comments: 
    The wine shows a light straw colour with green edges. On the nose it shows beautiful aromas of citrus, a touch of green apple, some minerality and a hint of vanilla. This full-bodied wine is complex and packed with layers of stone fruit, toasted almonds and a long lingering aftertaste. The wood is perfectly in balance. This wine will mature well for another 2-3 years. Food Pairing: Enjoy this wine slightly chilled on it's own or serve it with chicken and fish dishes with delicately spiced or fruit-based sauces, pastas and any seafood dishes.
