Description of Vergelegen Reserve Chardonnay 2018

Vergelegen Reserve Chardonnay 2018 (Chardonnay)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Attractive lemony yellow-green colour.
  • Nose: Complex nose of citrus, white peach, pineapple, spice, citrus blossoms, apricot and buttered toast aromas.
  • Mouth: The taste is long and elegant with a lively minerality.

APPELLATION: Stellenbosch

VINEYARD: Vergelegen. The grapes are all Estate grown and selected from three vineyards - Rooiland 12 & 13 and the super vineyard Lower Schaapenberg.

GRAPES: 100% Chardonnay

AGEING: The young wine was left on the gross lees for 10 months with regular battonage, then stabilised and bottled on 19 January 2018.

PREPARATION: Grapes were whole-bunch pressed with no skin contact. The juice, with some clarification, was racked into 35% new French oak barrels (Francois Frère, Dargaud & Jaegle) and 50% second-fill and third-fill barrels for alcoholic fermentation. The spontaneous onset of fermentation was allowed for and after 7 days the barrels were inoculated with a pure culture yeast strain. Fermentation took approximately 15 days to complete - once the sugar was fermented, all 43 barrels were topped up. Only one-third of the barrels were allowed to complete malolactic fermentation to retain optimum acidity/freshness.

ALCOHOL: 14.5

Vi drakk den mellom forretten og hovedretten. Jeg prøvde den med min søster.
Vergelegen Reserve Chardonnay er klar gul i fargen med lyse refleksjoner. Duft av hvite blomster : Jasmine , liljer .... Veldig frisk smak.
