TIERHOEK CHARDONNAY

SHELLEY SANDELL

+27 (0) 21 674 3041

A lovely, fresh Chardonnay with a subtle citrus and baked apple palate that is rounded from 100% barrel ageing, producing a soft creaminess. This wine appeals to both wooded and unwooded fans, and works brilliantly with food pairing.

Company Overview: Tierhoek is ideally suited for vineyards. The unique climate, soils and aspect all allow for premium wines that are characterised by intense fruit flavours, backed by subtle minerality and fresh acidity. The flagship is the Chenin Blanc made from low yielding 30 year old trellised vines, which are barrel fermented in French Oak to express the full flavours of this variety, while maintaining complexity and elegance. Some of these Chenin Blanc grapes are naturally dried off the vine for several weeks then barrel fermented in French Oak to produce Tierhoek’s straw wine. Not to be outdone, the Sauvignon Blanc (unwooded) and Grenache Noir are some of the finest examples of their kind in South Africa. All the Tierhoek wines benefit from ageing in the bottle.
