Tasting Notes:

A lively combination of fresh lemon and lime aromas on the nose with scented white flowers, subtle marzipan and shavings of orange zest, all underpinned by flinty minerality. Superbly elegant in style with layers of zesty lime confit, some green melon, pistachio and an enticing seashell minerality that flows from the nose to the palate. The fine structure is complemented by remarkably refreshing acidity and a rich creamy texture. The finish is long, precise and very mineral.

The Mira Chardonnay is produced in a gently oaked style from selected Chardonnay vineyards on the Estate. A wine with intense fruit purity and an elegant, creamy texture.

Leaf fall occurred at the normal time, which allowed good reserves to build up. Winter started late with warmer day and night temperatures and lower rainfall than in the 2016 growing season. A warm spring resulted in early, however uniform budding. A cool yet dry and windy November/December resulted in drier soils and small berries. January rains moistened soils and cool evening temperatures allowed for slower ripening of our grapes.

At our cellar every individual berry is meticulously hand selected on our sorting table, ensuring only the very best are used for making our fine wines. Attention to detail is our focus, with the ultimate care taken for each and every grape.
