Description

The grapes for Durbanville Hills’ Collector’s Reserve Chardonnay were selected from two 15-year-old blocks on the open Western side of the valley. One block is Westerly-facing, ensuring good sun exposure, whilst the other faces the cooler South-Westerly direction. The grapes were hand-picked, handled with minimum intervention and minimum use of sulphur. The juice was allowed to settle, after which it was racked to a stainless steel tank for fermentation. To protect the natural citrus and stone fruit flavours, no malo-lactic fermentation was done. Before blending, a barrel selection was done and only the best barrels were selected for this unique wine. After blending, the wine was bottled without filtration.
