Kershaw Wines Ziggurat Chardonnay 2022

100% Chardonnay
Wine of Origin Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge

  • The grapes are sourced from a block in the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. This is the first wine to be bottled under the Kershaw label as such.
  • Made only from clone CY548 which typically gives stony, meaty and robust flavours.
  • Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed, the wine undergoes a wild ferment, 12 months in Burgundy-coopered barrels and is assessed every eight weeks.

Tasting Notes: Elevated aromas of apple, mineral, citrus and oat bran. Tightly wound, precise, linear, gently massaged with light oak spices. Mouth cleansing acidity with a crème fraiche and oatmeal texture.

Ready for drinking from 2025 until 2030.

Winemaker: Richard Kershaw
