Kruger Family Wines, Klipkop Chardonnay 750ml 2017South Africa, Piekenierskloof
Partnering with Johan Van Zyl from the farm Heidedal in the high mountains of the Piekenierskloof Valley, they put much effort into this vineyard and winemaking to produce a very individually styled wine. The grapes are grown on 700 meters above sea level on decomposed granite soils and were picked mid February from a mature 25+ year old vineyard.
In the winery they did whole bunch pressing straight to French Oak barrels, without any additions - natural fermentation started slowly after five days and completed in 48 days after which the wine spent 10 months on the gross lees before preparing (with minimum intervention) for bottling. The lees was stirred occasionally and malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. The result is an honest wine and true to Chardonnay – reflecting where it comes from.
