Theuniskraal Semillon Chardonnay Case - 6 x 750ml

In the early 1700's, Theunis Bevernagie settled in a fertile valley guarded by the towering Witzenberg and Winterhoek mountains, and fed by the Klein Berg River. His name was to be enshrined in local wine lore for in 1927 Theuniskraal was bought by the Jordaan family, specifically for winemaking. In 1948, Andries Jordaan launched the estate's first riesling and a South African icon was born. Just two years later Theuniskraal riesling took gold at the commonwealth wine show against international competition. Andries' sons, Kobus and Rennie continued the tradition of fine riesling, extending plantings with other classic varieties, both white and red. Today their sons Andries and Wagner carry on the family's hands-on quality approach to winemaking. Vineyards (viticulturists: Wagner and andries jordaan) theuniskraal comprises 350 ha with 130 ha under vine, mostly cape riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The soils are predominantly gravel and sandy loam. Clay and sandy loam soils are found along the river. The Semillon grapes, which dominate the blend, were grown in trellised and irrigated vineyards at an altitude of 200 m above sea level with an east-west row direction. 

All the vines, planted in 1998 and 2004, are cultivated in loamy clay soils, which keep roots cool in the summer months and preserve the varietal flavours. The south-facing Chardonnay vineyards are also planted at an altitude of 200 m above sea level, in stony, loamy soils as well as deeper loamy soils. The trellised vines, established in 2000 and 2002, receive supplementary drip irrigation. Winemaking (winemaker: Andries Jordaan) Both the Semillon and Chardonnay grapes were harvested by hand mostly from pre-dawn to early morning. The Semillon was picked in late February at 21,5 degrees Celsius balling, while the Chardonnay was picked at 23.5 degrees Celsius balling in early and mid February. Both varietals were vinified individually and received skin contact for three hours. After cold fermentation at 13 degrees celsius to 15 degrees celsius for 14 to 21 days, the wines remained in stainless steel tanks without any Oak maturation until blending.
