Chardonnay vineyards ranging from 21 – 25 years, grown on mild slopes of Schale decomposed granite and alluvial sandy soils on Franschhoek’s Dassenberg Mountain. Very low yielding at less than 3.5 tonnes / ha.

Chardonnay grapes from Rickety Bridge were harvested by hand in February 2016 at 22.8° Balling in the early morning hours.

This wine was naturally fermented in small French oak barrels and second fill Austrian foudres. (10% new and 90% older) The must was fermented at 14° - 17° C and lees stirred up daily for twelve weeks, thereafter it was only stirred up once a week for the remaining 7 months in barrel.

The wine was stored at 15°C without receiving a racking or any sulphur additions during the entire 10 months of barrel ageing. 

Food pairing
