Paul Cluver Wines The Wagon Trail Chardonnay 2020

100% Chardonnay

Grapes 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 in barrel for nine months, 38% new and with minimal lees stirring.

Tasting Notes: An elegant Chardonnay, a wine with great focus and minerality. The nose gives hints of lemon and tangerine, the palate is elegant with great balance, complexity and a long, lingering aftertaste.

This will be the 10th Vintage of The Wagon Trail Chardonnay on Auction.

Ready for drinking now or over the next 5 to 10 years.

This wine is packed in a wooden box.
