Vergelegen Chardonnay Reserve 2016 75cl

The grapes were harvested from Vergelegen's two premium white wine vineyards: Schaapenberg and Lower Schaapenberg. These are south- and south-west-facing vineyards 200-240m above sea level. The soils are Clovelly and granite with a clay base. The R110 rootstock was used for its suitability to dry-land vine cultivation.

Grapes were whole-bunch pressed and not given any skin contact. The juice, not clarified too much, was racked into 50% new French oak barrels (Francois Frre, Dargaud & Jaegle) and 50% second-fill barrels for alcoholic fermentation. No cultured yeasts were used. The wine was matured on its lees for 12 months with regular bttonage.

The wine shows an attractive lemony yellow-green colour with a complex nose of citrus, vanilla, butterscotch, tropical fruit and mineral tones. The palate is long and full with delicate wooding. Complex, powerful yet still elegant.
