This is the sixth year that entirely Estate-grown grapes have been used in the making of the Premium Chardonnay. The vineyards were cropped at 6 tons/ha – 100% of the grapes were barrel fermented. Selections were made in December 2017 before bottling in January 2018.

The grapes selected for this premium Chardonnay were sourced from Vergelegen’s Korhaan, Rooiland, Rocklands , Slanghoek and Lower Schaapenberg vineyards.

Grapes were whole-bunch pressed and not given any skin contact. The juice, slightly clarified, was racked into 20% new French oak barrels (Francois Frere, Dargaud & Jaegle and 80% second, third and fourth fill barrels for alcoholic fermentation.

All the different vineyards were barrel fermented and matured on the lees for 10 months before bottling on 22 January 2018.

Food pairing

Perfect with light and delicate food such as raw and lightly cooked shellfish like crab and prawns.
