Appreciating an ultra-elegant, richly layered Chardonnay in the company of wine lovers is what memories are made of, and Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Chardonnay 2015 certainly fits the bill.
This wine literally bursts with flavour unlocked from slow ripening, well nurtured grapes from hand-selected parcels of vines grown in Stellenbosch.
“I particularly love this Chardonnay because it is a beautiful example of the personality, femininity and precision embodied by Fleur du Cap. I am proud to be part of the crafting process of this exceptionally well-balanced wine,” says winemaker Kristin Basson.
The Chardonnay was matured for nine months in second (60%) and third (40%) fill French oak barrels specifically chosen to underline the elegant, yet bold character of the wine, achieving the perfect marriage between the fruit and wood nuances. After careful consideration, only the best batches were selected for the final blend to create a wine that is smooth, rich and beautifully layered with the ability to mature for another two to three years.
