Jardin Unoaked Chardonnay, 2016

15.00

This Chardonnay comes from the winery of Gary and Kathy Jordan, situated in a ravine in the Stellenbosch Kloof ward, about 14km from False Bay. The cool Atlantic waters feeding the bay provide a consistent morning fog that helps moderate the ripening of the grapes on the South and East facing slopes. Inspired by the Burgundian, more specifically Chablis-style of Chardonnay in France, these 30 year old vines offer aromas of freshly grated lemon zest, citrus orchards, and apricot puree. After fermenting in stainless steel with 2 different strains of French yeast, the wine spends four months “sur lie”. This process can impart a nutty, marzipan kind of flavor to an already delicious wine, and makes it a perfect pairing for tapas and light seafood dishes.
