Crystallum Ferrum chardonnay 2021Regular price €39,70
This chardonnay comes from a single vineyard in 'Shaw's Mountain', close to the winery. Shaw's Mountain lies just outside the Hemel-en-Aard valley near Hermanus. With its slightly lower location and also closer to the ocean, this chardonnay appears a bit tighter and more straight-lined. The full, rich attack sizzles for a very long time until the finale with a lot of subtlety and finesse in between with retronasal aromas of dried lemon, fresh grapefruit, toast and yellow apple. Like all other cuvées, this chardonnay was naturally fermented in 300l and 500l French oak barrels, 20% of which are new oak.
