Looking for a bottle of unwooded chardonnay to have with braaied chicken or snoek this weekend?
The 2014 Place in the Sun Unwooded Chardonnay also goes well with oysters and steak tartare.
Place in the Sun is a Fairtrade-certified brand paying a premium to the growers of the Devon Valley grapes. The farm’s Fairtrade Premium Committee decides on how to spend this money. So far, projects include a series of educational, recreational and nutritional to improve the quality of life of the farm workers who tend the fruit for our wines and their families, with up to 250 people benefiting.
The winemaking process is as follows: the grapes were picked at 22° to 23° Balling. After pressing, the clean juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 14° and 16° C for around 14 days. The wine was left on the lees for another 30 days before bottling.
Here’s what to expect from this wine:
The 2014 Place in the Sun Unwooded Chardonnay sells for around R42 a bottle and is available from stockists such as Makro and Pick n Pay.
