Seaward Chardonnay 2019

"We look toward the sea for our quality terroirs. Grapes grown in close proximity to the cold Atlantic ocean ripen slower, resulting in concentrated, 

well-balanced wines."


FRANS K. SMIT


A chic seaside holiday in a glass. Made with grapes handpicked from the breezy Tygerberg Hills, this Chardonnay is as elegant as it is versatile: the perfect accompaniment for fireside reading, sweltering poolside afternoons or sophisticated dinner parties. Being lightly-wooded, its citrus-dominated flavours are rounded out by creamy vanilla; the oak offers structure without being overbearing. Serve with garlicky mussels, parmesan mushroom pasta, roast pork or butternut soup.

TASTING NOTE
Aromas of grapefruit and mango with undertones of raw almonds. The creamy palate offers fresh citrus, nectarine and well-integrated vanilla.

WINEMAKING

WINEMAKER
Jacques Erasmus

ORIGIN
Cape Town

TERROIR / SOIL
Oakleaf soils

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Dryland, semi-trellised vines with an average age of 16 years yielded the grapes for this wine.

WINEMAKING
Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning in 10 kg lug boxes and pre-cooled before hand-sorting, destemming and crushing. Skin contact was limited to six hours and the free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with a selected yeast strain. The fermentation took place under controlled temperatures between 12° and 14°C. The wine matured for six months on the lees before bottling.
