Paul Cluver The Wagon Trail Chardonnay 2017

For the past nine years, we have selected the grapes for the Paul Cluver Wagon Trail Chardonnay from the same vineyard planted in 1987. After whole bunch pressing and settling without any settling agents, the wine was 100% wild fermented in a selection of French oak barrels (33% new, the rest second and third fill). Lees stirring was done to a lesser degree to retain freshness. The wine remained on the lees for a total of nine months without any sulphur addition.
