Hill & Dale - Chardonnay - Case 6 x 750ml
Stellenzicht's hillandale label offers a range of accessibly styled wines with a new world character for international appeal, created by award-winning winemaker Guy Webber. Despite being made for early and easy enjoyment, Webber has eschewed a generic format for these wines, instead choosing to express clearly their origins. Grapes for the hillandale wines are selected from vineyards within the Stellenbosch region. Extensive vineyard management programmes are in place for each of the vineyards from which the fruit is selected. All aspects of the process are strictly governed so as to comply with not only the standards set for the integrated production of wine (IPW) system, but also with the quality standards set for HACCP and the BRC (British Retail Consortium). The name for the range was derived from Stellenzicht's hillandale farm, located just outside the town of Stellenbosch. The logo on the label depicts an Oak tree leaf, synonymous with the historic university town. Vineyards The sites on which the selected vineyards are grown vary from cool, south-facing slopes to warmer, northwest-facing slopes, and in altitude from the warmer, low-lying plains to the cool, elevated slopes of the Helderberg and Simonsberg mountains. All the vines are trellised and grow predominantly in soils of decomposed granite, although some table mountain sandstone and shale are also found on a number of the slopes. The vines are grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstocks and are pruned and trained in a way that optimises yield and quality of the fruit. Wine making The grapes were harvested by hand between 27 February and 7 march at an average of 23.4 degrees Celsius balling. After destalking and crushing, the juice was immediately separated from the skins. After floatation of the juice, it was inoculated with pure yeast cultures to optimise fermentation at around 15 degrees Celsius. This lasted between 17 and 19 days. A combination of French and American Oak was used during fermentation to enhance the fullness and character of the variety and to add an extra dimension to the wine's complexity. After a seven-month period of lees contact, the wine was blended with a touch of Semillon and viognier to add to the overall freshness and fullness. The first bottling took place on 1 December 2014 with the total production being around 7 400 cases (12 x 750ml).
