Paul Cluver, Estate Chardonnay, Elgin, South Africa, 2016
100% Chardonnay 100% wild fermented and aged for 9 months in a selection of French oak barrels.
Lots of buttered toast/brioche on the nose with some citrus aspects too. Tangerine fruit and citrus blossom fragrances are apparent, with hints of vanilla pod and almond flakes. These characteristics follow through onto the palate where the fine, fresh acidity is natural, and adds poise and focus to the wine.
"… combines flavours of oatmeal and spicy oak with tangy acidity and creamy, lees-derived mid palate texture. Deliciously drinkable." Tim Atkin MW
Only 15% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation, all without inoculation, further ensuring freshness and acidity.
