Craven Chardonnay

$57.00

Craven Chardonnay, Stellenbosch, South Africa, 2020 (750ml)

TASTING NOTES

Savoury and stony, with yellow plum, young quince, lemon blossom, unbuttered popcorn, and a saline wash on the humming finish. Lovely, pure view of Stellendbosch Chardonnay.

ABOUT THE WINE

Picking a site was key to producing the Chardonnay, as the winemakers wanted a wine which kept its freshness and had an element of saltiness. This chardonnay was planted in 2005 on super sandy granitic soils (like a beach). Whole cluster pressed and native fermented in neutral 500L barrels for MLF and 8 months' rest.
