Women's Wine Awards 2016 - Gold


Tasting Notes:
The nose is complex, fresh with lemon and citrus blossom. The palate is medium bodied, balanced with lingering limey texture rounded up with integrated oak.

Blend Information: 100% Chardonnay


In The Vineyard:
The fruit for this Chardonnay comes from one of the oldest Chardonnay blocks on the farm.


About The Harvest:
Two pickings were done for this vintage - a quarter was picked at 22° Balling with the balance at 23.5° Balling.


In The Cellar:
The bunches were whole bunch pressed for 3 hours, settled naturally for 12 hours over night, then transferred to French oak for fermentation. Once completed the wine was aged on full ferment lees for 12 months with no malolactic, minimal battonage and no racking. A barrel selection was then done to make up the blend. 35% new, 30% 2nd fill and 35% 3rd fill.

The Estate:
In 1992 the Schmitz family bought Hoopenburg wines, and went about establishing a quality driven boutique wine farm. With beautiful views from Table Mountain to Simonsberg, good soils and cool afternoon breezes the location is perfect for premium wine production. The Hoopenburg estate is unique in South Africa where 100% of the grapes are produced from low yielding bush vines. Nourished by pure underground water, the unique bush vines produce grapes of exceptional taste and flavour. The moderate climate of the area combined with the good soils helps to produce top quality grapes and wines across all three of the Hoopenburg ranges.
