2013 Hagelsberg Chardonnay
Middelvlei Estate

The grapes were sourced from prime vineyards in the Western Cape area.  The conditions for the healthy growth and ripening of the grapes during the growing season (September - December) were ideal.  The rainfall during the winter before the vintage, as well as the growing season was average.  The rainfall was 820mm for the 2012/2013 season compared to the long-term annual average of 700mm.

The grapes were harvested by hand and were picked during February 2013.  Grapes were picked at optimum ripeness from about 21¢X Balling.  In the cellar the juice received 30 minutes skin contact.  100% was tank fermented.

Appellation
Stellenbosch

Winemaker¡¦s Comments
The nose and palate show hints of tropical fruit and a generous touch of spice.  Luscious peach and guava flavours add to the fruitiness of this elegant wine.
