Case of Bosman Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Chardonnay
A lightly oaked wine that tastes of butterscotch and pear and will go well with roast chicken or a creamy seafood pasta.
The cooled grapes are hand sorted , destemmed and pressed settle and clear overnight. 15% of the settled juice is then fermented and matured in new French ceramic toasted oak for 8 months which retained the bright fruit aromas. Only partial spontaneous malolactic fermentation occurred in the barrels.
Pale gold. The lively combination of subtle oak and bright fruit exhibits aromas of white flowers, citrus, pear and brioche. Beautiful mouth feel with a long creamy finish.
VARIETAL: Chardonnay 100%.
