Nederburg the Manor Chardonnay, the grapes for this wine were sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Malmesbury and Philadelphia areas. The vines, situated on mostly south to south-westerly-facing slopes and were harvested by hand during February. Once fermentation was underway, 80% of the fermenting juice was transferred to a combination of new and second-fill French oak barrels, where the wine remained on the lees for approximately six months. Lovely aromas of lime and melon with vanilla oak notes in the background. Crisp and fresh with a creamy texture and subtle citrus and melon flavours.
