Vergelegen Chardonnay  

Vergelegen Chardonnay


CHARDONNAY

Pale green-gold colour with intensely-focused flavours showing citrus, biscuits, toast and ripe fruits.  The taste is long and elegant with excellent fruit/wood integration. Best served at 10 - 12°C with smoked salmon, oysters, grilled rainbow trout and poultry.

Origin

The grapes were sourced from Vergelegen’s premium vineyards located on South/South West facing slopes.  The soils are Helderberg granite or Clovelly. Rootstock used is R 110 – which is very suitable for dry-land conditions. As a result of cool conditions and wind, yields were extremely low at 4.5 tons/ha.

Vinification

No skin contact is employed.  The majority of the grapes were whole bunch pressed, settled to a turbidity of 175 NTU’s and then racked to 225l French barrels for fermentation. 40% of the wine was barrel fermented and matured on the lees for 10 months. The remainder (60%) was fermented in stainless steel tanks.
