Other The grapes are harvested by hand into bins the morning of 13 March 2018 at 22.5˚B. The grapes are then cooled before it is whole bunch pressed. The free-run juice was allowed to settle overnight at 8°Celsius using pectolytic enzymes. The juice is covered with carbon dioxide blankets to prevent oxidation. The wine is then inoculated, and fermentation took place in a 225 litre Burgundy barrel at a constant temperature of 18 - 20°C for approximately 15 days.

FoodSuggest Being such an elegant wine with full and rich flavours it is a wonderful food wine. Creamy or curry chicken dishes as well as seafood like prawns, scallop’s chowder will be a match made in heaven. Chicken Kiev with butter and parsley sauce is also a good friend of Israel Chardonnay as it highlights the butter flavours in the wine.
