Grape Varieties: 50% Chardonnay, 50% Ortega
Total Acidity: 7.0 g/l
This wine imparts attractive aromas of citrus peel, flower blossom and white stone fruit (peaches, lychees) courtesy of the Ortega, a german grape variety, recognised for it’s early ripening and the high sugar levels reached in the grapes even in our cool climate. In the Winery, our Ortega is partially barrel-fermented and lees stirred, leading to just a hint of sweet oak coming through on the palate. The whole-bunch pressed Chardonnay lends the blend excellent structure, length and finesse and will give it great ageing ability. This is one for both drinking now and cellaring.
Food recommendation – monkfish, grilled sardines, clam chowder.
