Muratie Isabella Chardonnay 2019

Muratie Isabella Chardonnay 2019

In this fresh and elegant wine with its peach-blossom fragrance, the aim is to evoke those bedtime butterfly kisses of their beautiful baby girl, so the oaking (10 months in this case) is subtle, serving only to spice the stone fruit, melon and citrus flavours with hints of hazelnuts and vanilla cream. It’s beautifully delicate and understated, with a pure, slightly piquant and lingering ‘mineral’ finish promising great charm well beyond the toddler years.

For current Muratie owners Rijk and Kim Melck, there could be only one name for their Chardonnay, made from the free-run juice of hand-harvested, whole-bunch pressed grapes, fermented naturally and then matured in 500l French oak for nine months: the name of their baby daughter, Isabella.

in the vineyard : The free run juice is chilled to about 8˚ Celsius for 2 days. The clear juice is then taken off and pumped into 500 litre barrels where it undergoes natural fermentation.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand harvested before being whole-bunch pressed.

in the cellar : After the alcoholic fermentation, 40% wild fermentation, the wine underwent 60% malolactic fermentation and spent 9 months in wood before being racked and blended. It was then stabilised before it was bottled and labelled.
