Chardonnay grown on sand soils over limestone in South Australia’s Limestone Coast. Direct pressed and barrel fermented. Beautiful acidity from the limestone soils with citrus, white stone fruit and a slightly oxidative and honeyed character on the palate.
Cape Jaffa is situated just out of the town of Robe in SA. Chardonnay grown over sandy soils over limestone only a few kilometres from the ocean. Cool sea breezes and cooling temps each night lend to great ripening flavours in Cape Jaffa fruit. What I love about this wine is how the chardonnay expresses its site, climate and soils. A wine so different to our Volcanic Lakes Chardonnay and unique in itself. This wine is de-stemmed and left on skins for a couple of hours to enhance texture and give it a beautiful golden colour. This texture matched with the natural acidity and our earlier pick make this a refreshing chardonnay perfect for those warm days.
