Description

The grapes for Durbanville Hills’ Collector’s Reserve Chardonnay were selected from two 15-year-old blocks on the open Western side of the valley. One block is Westerly-facing, ensuring good sun exposure, whilst the other faces the cooler South-Westerly direction. The grapes were hand-picked, handled with minimum intervention and minimum use of sulphur. The juice was allowed to settle, after which it was racked to a stainless steel tank for fermentation. To protect the natural citrus and stone fruit flavours, no malo-lactic fermentation was done. Before blending, a barrel selection was done and only the best barrels were selected for this unique wine. After blending, the wine was bottled without filtration.

Sommelier Review

“The 2013 Collectors reserve Chardonnay has an uncomplicated lime and pear-scented nose that is clean. The palate is balanced but with a lot of creamy oak that makes it old fashioned in style, though I could still imagine polishing off a bottle!”
