Greeny straw colour. Fruity lemon and nectarine on the nose, with hints of cashew nut and lees as the only evidence of wood maturation. A juicy and polished entry, medium-full, with lots of citrus and juicy peach on the palate. Lively length with good freshness for a wood-matured wine.

Cultivar: 100% Chardonnay

Alcohol 12.5% Vol 

Residual sugar 1.6 g/l 

Total acid 5.9 g/l 

pH 3.40

Grapes for this wine originate from La Motte, Franschhoek. The vineyard lies 200 metres above sea-level, against a southern and south western slope.

After fermentation the lees was stirred regularly over a period of 11 months. 20% of the French oak barrels in which the wine was matured were new. All the components were blended subsequent to maturation and the wine was bottled in the La Motte cellar in April 2019.

Food Pairing

Excellent with caviar, snails, carpaccio paté, crayfish (Cape rock lobster), prawns, mussels, perlemoen (abalone) and creamy cheese.
