SILVERBOOM SPECIAL RESERVE CHARDONNAY - 2018 (SOUTH AFRICA, COASTAL REGION)
S$34.00

Availability: In stock

Creamy and harmonious


This Chardonnay has an elegant straw yellow colour in the glass with beautiful golden strokes. Notes of citrus fruit, green apples and melted butter flow from its aroma. In the mouth the wine is experienced as creamy and deliciously full-bodied without being bombastic. The same notes as in the fragrance can be detected in the taste, supplemented with a good balance of sweet and sour. This is a pleasant and harmonious wine, where the oak is well integrated in a long and lingering aftertaste. Silverboom Chardonnay is an obvious accompaniment to light dishes such as salads, pasta, fish and poultry.
Serving temperature: 10-12°C.




Vinification


The vines on which the Chardonnay grapes for this wine grow are located in the well-drained fields of the Coastal Region, where the soil is characterised by shale and granite. The grapes are harvested in the early morning hours in the middle of February. Immediately after being harvested the grapes are brought to the winery where they are destalked and carefully pressed to avoid crushing the seeds. The must is left to rest overnight until the grape marc has filtered away, and is then transferred to stainless steel fermentation tanks. Here the wine undergoes a controlled fermentation at a low temperature of about 18 degrees, a process which typically takes 3-4 weeks. Once fermentation is complete the wine is aged in oak barrels for 5 months before being bottled and released into the market.


The producer


Silverboom is a high quality wine from South Africa. Over the past decades South Africa has undergone a massive change and the country is today able to supply an array of fantastic wines. One of the main reasons for this is the country's geographical location. In addition to skilled winemakers a good wine requires a number of factors: Sunshine, warmth, cold and good soil, all of which is present in South Africa. In recent years South Africa has also fostered a new and innovative generation of winemakers; people who have turned their attention towards the rest of the wine world and who seek inspiration from both Italy and France. Silverboom is the result of highly skilled winemakers and a generous landscape. It is the best South Africa has to offer, with a good helping of European inspiration.
