Grapes for the Holden Manz Chardonnay Reserve 2018 were harvested in two separate pickings from Somerset West. Following harvesting, the berries were cooled to 5°C prior to a whole bunch press using the Champagne press cycle. After clarifying overnight, pressed juice was transferred to 225-litre French oak barrels (90% new barrels, 10% 2nd-fill) for fermentation. 100% barrel fermented using natural yeast with extended lees contact and daily batonnage. Less than 20% of this wine underwent malolactic fermentation. A total of 1,302 bottles were produced. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Vanilla, lemon zest, pistachios, lime blossom.

Palate: Extended lees contact adds a creaminess and complexity, presenting an appealing length of palate. Full mouth feel, crisp clean acidity highlighting ripe grapefruit and limes.

Finish: Elegant flavours of Cape gooseberry, white peach and elderflower interwoven with complex acidity provide a long, smooth finish.
