Retailer of quality wine and spirits around the world
2011 Chardonnay, Lanzerac Wines
Product Code#:6009613-931262
Out of Stock


HK$235.00



The grapes are come from seven different vineyard blocks of Lanzerac, D4, D5, L3, L5, L10, L11 and L12, with a total area of 5.44 hectares.  The blocks are located 166-375 meters above sea levels.  The age of vines is various from 10 to 19 years.

All harvesting is done by hand.  Extreme care is taken not to damage grapes.  The grapes were picked between 22.5° and 24° Balling with whole bunches crushed without prior destemming to ensure a prominent fruit character as well as a well-rounded wine.  After pressing, the juice was settled in stainless-steel tanks for 48 hours at 12-14°C before the clear juice was racked into French oak barrels.  Each barrel was inoculated with difference yeast strains.  A third of the wine was fermented with natural yeasts.  This ensures a “softer” wine with complexity.  The barrels used on the Chardonnay were 40% new and 30% 2nd fill and 30% 3rd fill.  About 25% of the Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel tanks.  After fermentation in the barrels, the wine stayed on the lees.  The wine was left to mature in the barrels for 7 months.  Batonnage was done every week for 6 months.

Cellarmaster's Notes
The 2011 Chardonnay offers a complexity of flavours, including ripe citrus overlaid with traces of clove, ginger, butterscotch and vanilla.  The 2011 Chardonnay is a full-bodied wine that can be enjoyed chilled now or will hold its own for another 2-3 years of bottle maturation.

This wine is rated 4-Star by the world famous Platter's South African Wine Guide.
