Fort Simon Chardonnay 2018

A PASSION FOR PERFECTION

Winemaking

This wine consists of only one cultivar, Chardonnay.   The grapes were handpicked and grapes were selected out of our best block of Chardonnay.  The grapes came in at 23-24 Balling, were destemmed and pressed.  The juice was inoculated with a yeast strain and fermentation took place in oak barrels for a period of 21 days at a temperature of 16 Celsius.  After fermentation, the wine was transferred to new French oak barrels for a period of 10 months.  After maturation, the wine was prepared for bottling.
