Wine Description

With strong influence of Alex Dale’s upbringing in Burgundy, the making of this Chardonnay is also adapted to our particular conditions in this ocean-facing part of the Cape –our mineral geology and temperate maritime climate both lending much to the equation. The emphasis on the citrus expression of the variety’s fruit character, the complexity that is achieved by barrel fermentation and the bracing acidity that adds focus and tension to the palate give this wine an interestingly delicate and restrained personality while retaining a geological, mineral and climatic sense of place.
