    The grape material for Kershaw Deconstructed Chardonnay CY96 comes from the cool Elgin region of the Western Cape, also known as the Lake District. This Chardonnay clone produces wines of aromatic and elegant character with slightly lower alcohol content, wonderful lightness and remarkable balance. Its seductive fruit profile with subtle hints of lemon and orange peel and fragrant peach blossom will add subtle nutty elements over time. The Chardonnay vines for this wine thrive in Cartref soil, which is composed of decomposed sandstone, pebbles and quartz, transferring delicately delicious finesse and complex fruit intensity to the wine. The use of 50% new oak in the wine ageing process brings discreetly restrained and well-integrated wood tones into the wine.

    Richard Kershaw's immense passion and love for South Africa's Elgin region and noble grape varieties are both the inspiration and the foundation of the Kershaw Deconstructed Chardonnay wine range, consisting of three different Chardonnay clones grown in the western part of the Elgin region.

    Treatment in the cellar

    The grapes were hand-picked in the early, cool autumn morning hours and immediately transported in small baskets to the press, where the berries were gently pressed all over the bunch. The juice thus obtained flowed by pure gravitational force without the use of pumps directly into the barrel, where the unclarified juice fermented spontaneously without the addition of enzymes or yeast cultures through natural yeast found wild in the environment and on the fruit. Malolactic fermentation was prevented. After fermentation, the wine rested in the barrel for 4 months and, after careful sulphurization, matured in the barrel for another 7 months before being skimmed and bottled. For the ageing in wood, handcrafted oak barrels from Burgundy were used, 50% of which were new wood and 50% second and third oak. This wine was produced in a limited quantity of 764 bottles in total - each bottle with individual identification on the label.
