Aristea Chardonnay Stellenbosch, 2018

South Africa

Producer

Aristea Wines

Grape Variety

Chardonnay

This is a subtle yet complex wine with layers of flavour and lots of appeal. Aromas of custard tarts, toast and jasmine and other floral notes lead to a soft and smooth palate. It is elegant with flavours of peaches, apricot, vanilla, lemon and oranges all emerging in the mouth then ending on a citrus pith finish creating length. Chardonnay from vineyards in the Polkadraal sub-region to the west of Stellenbosch was picked on February 1st, 2018 into small lug boxes and stored overnight in a cold room. Half the grapes were whole bunch pressed, the balance de-stemmed and crushed. After fermentation in barrels the wine was matured for a further 11 months using 35% new, 35% second fill and 30% third fill barrels with regular “bâtonnage” or lees stirring. A classy wine with integrated oak and lots of potential for cellaring.
