La Motte Chardonnay 2018

La Motte Chardonnay 2018

Greeny straw colour. Fruity lemon and nectarine on the nose, with hints of cashew nut and lees as the only evidence of wood maturation. A juicy and polished entry, medium-full, with lots of citrus and juicy peach on the palate. Lively length with good freshness for a wood-matured wine.

Excellent with caviar, snails, carpaccio paté, crayfish (Cape rock lobster), prawns, mussels, perlemoen (abalone) and creamy cheese.

about the harvest: Vineyard blocks: 6 (4,9 ha) Soil type: Clovelly Direction planted: North-South Density: 4 630 vines per hectare (2,7 x 0,8) Root stock: Richter 99 Clone: CY 3 Year planted: 1997 Trellising: Perold Irrigation: Drip The vineyard is managed to maintain a perfect balance between leaf coverage and yield. It is managed biologically.

in the cellar : All the bunches were whole-pressed and the clean juice was transferred to 300-litre French oak barrels where it was inoculated with yeast and fermented at between 17 and 20 degrees Celsius. Malolactic fermentation was also in the barrels. One third of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks, without malolactic fermentation. After fermentation the lees was stirred regularly over a period of 11 months. 20% of the French oak barrels in which the wine was matured were new. All the components were blended subsequent to maturation and the wine was bottled in the La Motte cellar in April 2019. 6 500 cartons (6 x 750 ml) were released as 2018 La Motte Chardonnay.
