Smokkelman White Batch 001
Smokkelman White Batch #001 shows that good Chardonnay doesn’t need a load of oak. Sourced from an old gnarly vineyard on the lower sandy slopes of Polkadraai Hills the wine shows a near aromatic perfume almost atypical of the variety.
With as little interference in the cellar as possible the grapes where whole bunch pressed into stainless steel where it underwent spontaneous fermentation and was left on the lees for 8 months to round out the palate.
Best served ice cold!
