2017 Sorrenberg Chardonnay
Vineyard/Year: Sorrenberg / 2017
The 2017 Sorrenberg Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented in French oak of which 25-30% is new oak. To add complexity all of the wine goes through natural yeast fermentation as well as full malolactic fermentation. Further complexity is achieved through extended lees contact for ten months, with weekly stirring, then a further eight months barrel maturation. Minimal handling & filtration ensures maximum flavour is retained.
‘The bouquet of the 2017 Chardonnay is presenting with delicate aromas of lemon zest combined with unobtrusive peach and pineapple aromas. These enticing aromas leads you on to a palate that is complex showing grapefruit and lemon, mineral stone, balanced with the appealing oak and pleasant acidity creating a long lingering palate with a touch of mealyness on the finish. This wine will cellar for 10 years plus.’
