Wine tasting notes

In the Robertson appellation we find some calcareous soils, and calcium is Chardonnay's friend. Calcium helps us in the sense that it gives this wine a brilliantly defined minerality, supported by yellow citrus fruits and an elegant cereal note on the entry of the palate. The fruit and mineral combination is what really excites me about this wine, and that is why this is an unoaked Chardonnay. Included is 8% of Chenin blanc, whole bunch fermented with pumpovers, to add some zippiness (my own word) to the citrus flavours.
