MARKLEW CHARDONNAY 2010 (sold out)

“When Haidee gave me the news that the Chardonnay 2009 had won a double gold at the annual Veritas awards I was not surprised. It’s rich straw colour conjures up images of hedonistic times. The aroma and palette follow through on this theme. If you’re looking to impress your mother in-law this will do the trick. But you have to be able to part with it first. Yummy.” – Mathew

Winemaker Kajo Maleks notes: Wonderfully rich and indulgent with hints of citrus and butterscotch. Chardonnay 2009 is drinking well now, but can be drunk for 2-4 years after vintage.

Climate/Terroir: Mediterranian. 12 year old vines facing South East.

Soil: Red Hutton

Vinification/Maturation: Picked and vinified from a selection of rows out of a top-performing dry land block of vineyard. Grapes were barrel fermented at a low temperature to ensure fruit flavours on both nose and palate. MLF  was 100% completed. 20% New French barrels, 80% 2nd and 3rd fill French barrels. Barrels were stirred once a week to add a buttery full bodied complexity.

Chemical Analysis: Alcohol -14,21%;  pH – 3,60; Acidity – 5.8; Res. Sugar – 1,58
