Hoopenburg Integer Chardonnay 2020
Some of the best Chardonnays find their origins in the Stellenbosch region. Being cooler, the region gives the wine body and fruit intensity. The wine is elegantly styled, with a lovely fresh citrus character and hints of grapefruit.

The origin of these grapes stems from the 13 year old vineyard around the cellar. Harvesting took place by hand at 23.5° balling in the cool of the morning. Without crushing or destemming, three hour long pressing took place, followed by fermentation for three weeks in stainless steel tanks. The wine was racked and allowed to age for twelve months on the fine lees, whereafter light filtration preceded bottling.
This crispy and fresh palatable wine pairs well with a variety of seafood (especially shellfish), light meals and salads. It will compliment buttery and creamy dishes. Perfect companion for after-dinner olives and cheese.
