Boschendal - Appellation Series - Elgin Chardonnay
The grapes for this Chardonnay came from unirrigated vineyards on mountain slopes of well-drained, rocky Bokkeveld shale soils distinguished by a layer of clay just a stone‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs throw away from the Atlantic Ocean. Cooler than average days and nights meant slow ripening of these low-yielding blocks, producing all the hallmark characteristics of Elgin‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs cool-climate terroir. Grapes were harvested by hand between 22‰ۡóÁÌÎ̝ÌÎ̥23í«̴́B, enabling quality control and bunch selection from the vineyard stage.
