Clay Shales Chardonnay
The 2013 Clay Shales Chardonnay is a single vineyard wine crafted from fruit grown just outside of the Hemel en Aarde Ridge ward. The site is over 300 metres high in altitude.
The region is characterised by a moderate, maritime climate that contributes to delay ripening. Soils are of a clay shale composition allowing for optimum fruit development while naturally restricting vigour and keeping crop levels very low.
