Relbia Estate Chardonnay

Colour: Pale Straw with hints of green.
Aroma: Fresh citrus followed by toasty and “nutty” oak characters with ‘sur lie’ overtones.
Palate: Fruit driven palate with forward primary fruit of green apple and melon leading into a rich toasty mid palate, with a fine, crisp and long finish.
Winemaking: Hand picked Chardonnay grapes are pressed as whole bunches and the majority of juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks. A small portion of fruit is transferred to new and one year old French oak barriques for fermentation on full solids. The oak portion also goes through 100% natural malolactic fermentation to add creaminess and complexity. Both batches are blended together to give a wine that is full and rich, while retaining a vibrant fresh finish.
Cellaring: Drink now or until 2015.
Serving: Serve lightly chilled with seafood or poultry dishes.
Technical: Alc: 12.6%, pH: 3.16, TA10.31g/L,
