Lourensford Limited Release Chardonnay (6 Bottles in Case)
The wine has intense ripe pineapple and melon flavours on the nose. It is supported with white peach, apricot and hints of jasmine, lemongrass and ginger. Voluptuous butterscotch, orange peel, roasted cashew nuts and hints of vanilla flavours in the wine reminds of a wet pine forest floor in autumn. The wine has a brilliant linear acidity and dominant dense mineral core with layered sweetness and balanced acidity due to the natural fermentation. The roundness on the palate and a beautifully integrated texture with flavours of orange blossom and lemony zest supported by a creamy finish coats your mouth and make you want to spend more time in the presence of this big wine.

Food Pairing
  • This powerful wine can be matched with strongly flavoured food like duck a l'orange and rich sauces like a walnut and hollandaise sauce, provided that it is not too lemony. It pairs particularly well with crayfish or smoked haddock in a creamy sauce. It is equally good with salmon and crab risottos.

Winery
  • Lourensford
Wooded
  • 37% of the wine was fermented in new Burgundian style wine barrels and 48% in 2nd fill barrels. 85% of the wine started fermentation in stanless steel tanks and were moved to barrels halfway through the fermentation process. 15% of the wine went through spontaneous fermentation on rocks from the vineyard and in a special fermentation egg. It allows for a very smooth circulation of the yeast and guarantees both a gentle and cpmplete fermentation. The wine spent 8 months on its primary lees with intermitted barrel rolling to stir up the leesand release the manno-proteins in the yeast cells that adds flavour and structure to the final wine.
