Winter’s Drift Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Winter’s Drift Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Tasting Notes

Colour: Brilliant with a green edge.

Nose: The wine displays a generous portion of freshly cut herbaceousness and a touch of lime rind. Hints of lychee and white peach support the green flavours.

Palate: The cool climate terroir comes through on the palate as a sign of the wine’s pedigree. The mouth feel balances the acidity of the wine.

Food: The expressive and crisp character of the wine will allow it to accompany a variety of chicken and fish dishes.

Ageing: Will age splendidly over the next three to four years

Vinivication: Grapes were harvested on two different picking dates for more complexity. The first batch grapes had 20 hours skin contact, and the second batch only 5 hours. The grapes were pressed in a basket press and settled down for 24 hours before inoculation. The two batches fermented separately. Different yeast strains and fermentation temperatures were used. The wine stayed on the lees for 3 months and was stirred monthly to create more mouth feeling

Winter’s Drift Chardonnay 2012

Winter’s Drift Chardonnay 2012

Tasting Notes

Colour: Pale straw colour with a hint of green.

Nose: A voluptuous nose displaying lemon rind and butter with softer vanilla, smokiness and peach in the background. The complexity confirms the quality of the wine.

Palate: The mouth feel is wide and soft. Acidity gently pierces theaftertaste to provide freshness.

Food: Will pair with a variety of white meat, fish and vegetable dishes.

Ageing: Will age splendidly over the next three to four years.

Vinivication: 50% of the final blend was fermented in stainless steel tanks. The must was inoculated with selected yeast and fermentation took place at low and constant temperatures. The other 50% fermented in French Oak barrels. This component was not inoculated; natural fermentation took place over a period of 9 months. This part of the blend went through Malolactic fermentation. After 6 months a little part of the wooded chardonnay went to the stainless steel tank for optimum integration…the rest stayed in the barrels for 10 months.

Viticulture: The Chardonnay vineyards have a (cooler) south facing aspect, and are 295m above sea level. Planted with a vine spacing of 2.5m x 1.5m in deep red/yellow soils with high water retention capacity, but very well drained.

Waterford Estate Chardonnay 2014

Waterford Estate Chardonnay 2014

De witte wijnen van het Estate Waterford zijn altijd afkomstig van afgebakende “single” wijngaarden, terwijl de rode wijnen, altijd een blend zijn van hun diverse wijngaarden om zo beter het terroir te kunnen weergeven van het Estate.

Een prachtige Chardonnay, waarvan we jammer genoeg veel te weinig van kunnen aankopen.  Als we 120 flessen per jaar kunnen aankopen, mogen we al tevreden zijn!!

100% barrel fermented in 225 l vaten.

Tasting notes Winemaker: “Vibrant green with yellow undertone.  Ripe tropical stone fruit with citrus blossom and vanilla pod on aroma.  The palate: tightly structure with dense round midbody and refreshing acid to add longevity.  Ideally consumed in 3 – 7 years if cellared in optimal conditions”.
