2016 CLONAL CHARDONNAY, Richard Kershaw. Elgin, S Africa

Bin:  270

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

Elgin is a genuinely cool, coastal region, east of Cape Town, between Stellenbosch and Walker Bay. Prior to the introduction of grape growing by the Cluver family it was almost exclusively an apple production region.
Richard says temperatures almost never exceed 23C in February, a key month at the end of the ripening period. That’s cooler than most of Italy and Spain.

Grape variety:

100% Chardonnay; natural yeasts; 11 months in French oak, one third new wood; 10% fermented and matured in concrete ‘egg’.% Chardonnay; natural yeasts; 11 months in French oak, one third new wood; 10% fermented and matured in concrete ‘

Producer:

Richard Kershaw, an English Master of Wine, was originally a Chef then a winemaker, eventually in charge at Mulderbosch and Kanu wineries, before starting his own project.

Old Bridge rating:

Beautiful balance of richness and freshness. For the quality, this really is not expensive….
