COMPOSITION
100% Chardonnay

HARVEST
The grapes were harvested into 450 kg. bins during March 2010. They were then destemmed and pressed and 5g/hl sulphites and 1 g/hl enzymes were added.

WINEMAKING
The grapes were received in a pneumatic press with dynamic drainage. Then the must was subjected to clarification with pectolitic enzymes for 48 hours at 10°C. The total acidity and FAN were adjusted when the yeasts were added. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks with cooling jackets at 14°C - 16°C for 20-25 days. A turbidity of around 200 NTU was maintained. A battonage system was used to keep the sediment in suspension.

PRODUCTION AND AGING
Stainless steel tanks were used. Finally the wine underwent static cold tartaric stabilization, pad-filtration and was then bottled.

TASTING NOTES
This wine is straw yellow in colour with greenish tones. The bouquet is notably fruity, with aromas of tropical fruit such as bananas and papayas. It is well balanced and has good volume in mouth feel.

• Alcohol by Volume 13.5%
