Our newly bottled and recent released Sans Chêne Chardonnay is an effort to silence those who think of "unoaked" Chardonnay to be of lesser quality than its wooded family members!

Partnering with Johan Van Zyl from the farm Heidedal in the high mountains of the Piekenierskloof Valley, we put much effort into this vineyard and winemaking to produce a very individually styled wine. The grapes are grown on 700 meters above sea level on decomposed granite soils and were picked mid-February from a mature 20+ year old vineyard.

In the winery we did whole bunch pressing straight to Stainless Steel ( 60 % ) and Concrete Egg ( 40% ) without any additions – natural fermentation started slowly after five days and completed in 28 days after which the wine spent 5 months on the gross lees before preparing ( with minimum intervention ) for bottling.

Food pairing

Enjoy with sushi or lightly buttered kingklip.
