Vanilla Chardonnay

The Story

Over the years, while tasting through Chardonnay barrels in our underground cellar, we came upon some barrels displaying the most attractive vanilla notes. Our curiosity led us on a journey, exploring the source of this distinctive vanilla profile, and the seed was sown to capture this enchanting essence in a bottle.

Viticulture and Winemaking

Vines are nestled in broken shale soil and Chardonnay grapes with peachy flavours are selected for good flavour intensity. Carefully selected oak is chosen for the months of maturation. White oak roasted at specific temperatures releases vanillin which marries with the tropical Chardonnay fruit to push the vanilla-like flavours to the front.

Tasting Notes

The colour is pale yellow. On the nose you get a combination of fruits like melon, mango, peach, pineapple and passion-fruit with butterscotch, crème brulee and a distinct note of Vanilla. On the palate you get peaches, a touch of zesty lime and a pleasant, lingering flavour of Vanilla to finish off with.
