Elgin Vintners Chardonnay African Wines

£16.00

An appetising mixture of ripe citrus, marmalade and oatmeal sit above the taught and textured palate, given backbone by a lean mineral streak. Subtle notes of spice from the oak ageing carry on through the long, harmonious finish.

Producer

The Elgin Vintners are a partnership of six dedicated grape growers who, believing in the excellence of the terroir and diversity of their vineyards, have combined their resources to cultivate and produce a range of high quality wines. They hail from the beautiful Elgin Valley, a high inland plateau completely surrounded by mountains, seventy kilometres along the coast from Cape Town. This cool climate region was long known for its apple orchards but since the turn of the century quality conscious winemakers have been taking advantage of the temperate conditions, afforded by the high altitudes and cooling winds from the Atlantic, to grow exemplary Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.

Vineyard

The grapes come from a single block of the Pumphouse vineyard, planted in 2005. Green harvesting is employed prior to veraison and the vines are trained to double perold. The grapes were hand picked into eighteen kilo boxes.

Winery

After pressing one hundred percent of the juice was fermented using wild yeast in French oak barrels sourced from Burgundian cooperates, twenty percent of which were new. Fortnightly battonage was carried out and the wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation. The finished wine then matured in barrel for a further ten months.
