Aslina Chardonnay 2018

Aslina Chardonnay 2018

Ntsiki Biyela, Winemaker

Only 500 cases are produced of this silky fruit-forward Chardonnay.

Grapes were handpicked at peak ripeness from sustainable vineyard plots in the warm-climate growing area of Stellenbosch and cooler Elgin Valley to achieve a balanced blend.

Following crush and press, part of the wine is fermented in barrels and part in steel tanks. The resulting wine is a rich golden yellow color and offers generous tropical fruit and citrus aromas and a creamy quality on the palate that finishes fresh with a bright acidity and lingering fruit notes.
