Clean and precise, this wine embraces the joy of mandarin and creamy lemon with a hint of freshly baked biscuits all offset against a backdrop of a lingering creamy palate
Handpicked in the last week of January.
Overnight cold storage of the grapes preserved the fresh fruity character during whole bunch pressing. After settling, the clear juice was racked off its gross lees into 54% new French oak barrels. The wines underwent a mix of natural fermentation and selected inoculation in the barrels. After three months lees contact the wine was racked and returned to age for a total of 12 months.
In the Cellar
The bright yellow colour of the Clivia is synonymous with our lively Chardonnay and its floral notes
