Stellenbosch, South Africa
Vibrant and pure, this Chardonnay is a classic expression of Stellenbosch’s mountainous terroir. The handcrafted skill of our Winemaker is evident in a regime of precise and reserved oaking to enhance the texture. Sumptuous and opulently juicy, the Summercourt Chardonnay offers bright, zesty white peach and tropical fruit which plays harmoniously on the palate and finishes with a refined minerality.
From the Summercourt vineyards of the Banghoek Valley. The grapes were handpicked in the early hours.
The grapes were whole bunch pressed and placed in stainless steel tanks to initiate the fermentation process until 50 percent complete. Juice was then moved to 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels where
fermentation was completed. The wine then spent 10 months in the older barrels on primary lees.
