Brutus Family Reserve Chardonnay 2016

SKU: 0606110233101
  • 100% Chardonnay grapes from young vines on Seven Sisters Vineyards blended with grapes from neighbouring  Vineyards. These vineyards are high density bush vines, planted in soils of “koffie klip”, decomposed granite and clay. The growing conditions yield concentrated fruits with minerality from partially stressed vines. Whole bunches were pressed without clarifying agents and minimal sulphur. Spontaneous fermentation  took place in French oak barrels for 6 weeks. Malolactic fermentation occurred during alcoholic fermentation resulting in slightly higher acidity. Burgundy barrels were used with medium toasting and the wine was matured for 8 months in barrels before being blended with an unwooded portion of wine.
