Bartinney Chardonnay (Extra High Quality)

Bartinney Chardonnay 2016

R158.00

Tasting Notes

Sunshine in a bottle. Our Chardonnay has excellent structure, vivid and deep, with aromas of rich apricot blossom, lemon and a touch of biscuity oak. Bursting with pineapple and citrus, interlaced with chalky acidity. A touch of oak gives the wine dimension. Creamy and nutty, soft and refined, with an intense finish.

Harvest and Winemaking Information

The grapes were handpicked early to mid-February. The bunches were crushed and destemmed before pressing and only the free run juice was selected for the Chardonnay. The wine was matured for 12 months in oak, 34% new French oak and 66% second and third fill barrels, before blending and bottling.

Drink now or keep for 3 to 5 years.

*A minimum order of 6 bottles (one case) is required.
