False Bay, Chrystalline, Chardonnay

The grapes for False Bay Crystalline Chardonnay stem primarily from from a single vineyard in Stellenbosch located next door to one of the region’s most lauded proponents of this noble cultivar. This coastal vineyard, gives lower yields, smaller berries which maintain their own natural acidity, thus obviating the need to add acid during the winemaking process. Made by Waterkloof’s talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard.

Wild yeast fermentation, low yields and naturally balanced grapes inform this serious unoaked textural Chardonnay with great focus and poise. Classy, with flinty minerality and great purity and restraint. Extended time on the lees adds nutty and toasty notes. Intense yet delicate right through to the finish.
