Haystack Chardonnay 2013


Winery: Journeys End

Winemaker: Leon Esterhuizen

Region: Sir Lowry’s Pass

haystackBackground: Named Haystack from the practise of planting wheat in between the vineyard rows which provides extra nutrients for the soil, as well as help prevent soil erosion. The wine was fermented and matured in second and third fill Francois Frere French oak barrels.

Result: The wine has a delicate straw colour with tropical fruit, citrus and toffee aromas. The palate is rich and creamy with complex savoury flavours of butterscotch and citrus with a long lingering finish.

When to drink: Enjoy now up to 2016

Drink with what: Seafood! We loved it with spicy grilled prawns!

Expect to pay: R65.00
