Paul Cluver The Wagon Trail Chardonnay 2018

100% Chardonnay

Wine of Origin Elgin

Grapes for the Wagon Trail Chardonnay are selected from the oldest Chardonnay vineyard on our Estate, planted in 1987, and also the oldest Chardonnay vineyard in the Elgin valley. After careful hand selection the grapes were gently whole bunch pressed, the juice was settled for two days without any settling or fining agents. Thereafter, the juice was transferred to barrel for fermentation without inoculation. The wine aged on its lees for nine months with minimal battonage before final selection and bottling.

Tasting Notes: An amazing expression of an elegant Chardonnay, the nose is bursting with citrus and hints of oatmeal. The palate is a study of precision, great minerality and balance, complex and lingering finish.

Ready for drinking now and over the next 5 – 10 years.

Winemaker: Andries Burger
