Warwick The White Lady Auction Chardonnay 2020

100% Chardonnay

Two unique Stellenbosch Chardonnay vineyards are used in the production of this distinct Chardonnay; one situated on the foothills of the Simonsberg and the other on the Helderberg. Grapes are hand-picked and whole bunch pressed, followed by settling in tank overnight. Juice is racked to barrel the following day for fermentation in 33% new, 50% second fill and 17% third fill 228 litre French oak barrels, followed by an ageing period of nine months before blending, filtration and bottling in February 2021.

Tasting Notes: The nose is restrained and focused, citrus, stone fruits, roasted almonds, yellow apple and oatmeal. The palate is packed with fruit weight, green apple, citrus and spice, balanced by fresh acidity.

Ready for drinking in 2022 and until 2027.

Winemaker: JD Pretorius
