Goose Chardonnay

£10.99

Goose Chardonnay
Goose Chardonnay is an unoaked Chardonnay made by US Open winning golfer Retief Goosen. Fresh and easy drinking with aromas of peach and pineapple with butterscotch notes on the rich and creamy palate.

The Upper Langkloof Appellation is arguably the coolest wine growing region in South Africa. These extreme climatic conditions ensure complexity of fruit and unique grapes that are handcrafted into world-class wines.

After hand harvesting the grapes they are transported to cool-rooms, where the temperature is maintained at 4 degrees Celsius for twelve hours to cool the grapes.

Upon arrival at the wine cellar the cold grapes are sorted before being crushed and pumped into open cement troughs. There the juice is allowed to ferment on the skin cap for eight to fourteen days, extracting the vital character and colour from the skins into the wine as it develops. Malolactic fermentation is completed in imported French Oak Barrels.
