Lourensford Limited Release Chardonnay 2017

R195.00

Sold Out

The wine has intense ripe pineapple and melon flavours on the nose. It is supported with white peach, apricot and hints of jasmine, lemongrass and ginger. Voluptuous butterscotch, orange peel, roasted cashew nuts, toffee and vanilla flavours in the wine reminds of a wet pine forest floor in autumn. The wine has a brilliant linear acidity and dominant dense mineral core with layered sweetness and balanced acidity due to the natural fermentation. The roundness on the pallet and a beautifully integrated texture with flavours of orange blossom and lemony zest supported by a creamy finish coats your mouth and make you want to spend more time in the presence of this big wine.

Harvest Description

The preceding two winters to the 2017 harvest has been the driest in recorded history on Lourensford. However, due to enough cold weather during winter the vines did go into proper dormancy with budding that occurred normally. We also experienced one of the coolest and driest summers in history with moderate temperatures and cool nights that resulted in slow and even ripening. With good canopy management and perfect ripening conditions we managed to bring the grapes in at just the desired time. This resulted in refined wines with elegance, good natural acidity with depth and structure.
