Sidewood Estate Chardonnay 2022

$26.00
A stunning Chard sourced primarily from Sidewood's famed Mappinga Vineyard. Just free run juice is fermented in 100% French oak and matured there before rigorous barrel selection and bottling. There's jasmine, white peach, grilled nuts, a glorious texture and cedary oak. A wonderful chardonnay.

A bit of shale and ironstone can be found, and the soil is acidic on average and rarely acidic.

The combination of climate and soil lends to superb cool-weather whites like Riesling (if you watch for mould), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and crisp Chardonnays. Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon can also be found, with the grapes maturing
