Whalehaven Conservation Coast Chardonnay 2012

This wine is crafted from fruit sourced from the Hemel-En-Aarde valley – an area world renowned for its production of Burgundian varietals – and exhibits a slight golden hue, with a sweet honeyed nougat and vanilla perfume on the nose. The mid palate is well rounded with almond and baguette flavours and a savoury mineral consistency which follows through to a lemon and citrus finish.

100% Chardonnay. The grapes were handpicked in the early hours of the morning on 27th February 2012. Once picked the grapes were placed in cold storage for overnight cooling to a temperature of 4°C. The following day the grape bunches were hand sorted before being put straight into press for bunch pressing. Thereafter the juice is moved to tank where it remained untouched for three days and allowed to settle. The juice was then racked off its lease and allowed to heat up naturally before being inoculated with Lallemand ICV D21 yeast at 30g/hl. The inoculated juice was moved to barrel for fermentation to take place, which took nineteen days. Once fermentation was complete, the lees was stirred every day for two weeks and twice a week for three months thereafter. The wine was then racked off its lease, given a light sulphuring and allowed four months maturation in tank before being given a light filtration and bottled. pH 3.28 Total acidity 6.0g/l Residual sugar 2.1g/l Alcohol 13.79%
