Single Vineyard Saint Catherine Chardonnay 2014
St Catherine is a single vineyard site with a unique character and is winemaker Leon Bester’s personal favourite. He selects only the ripest grapes and uses Burgundian techniques such as whole cluster pressing and fermentation and maturation in French oak barrels with battonage on the lees to bring texture and structure. A complex wine with a distictive terroir character. Light golden in colour, upfront stone fruit and anise seed with a hint of oak on the nose. Zesty citrus, butter toast and a spicy undertone on the palate, creamy texture and a pleasant lingering aftertaste.
