HARVEST & VINTAGE NOTES 

Millennia ago, termite colonies in the Robertson Valley built huge nests in the soil. Over time, these structures were calcified, leading to an exceptionally high limestone content in the soil. Limestone Hill vineyard is planted on a hill where the limestone is so abundant, it shimmers in low light. The limestone and heavy clay content of the soil ensures excellent water-retention. The high free lime content and pH of the soil adds complexity and structure to the wine. In summer a fresh southerly breeze has a cooling effect on the vineyards, allowing the grapes to ripen evenly and in perfect balance. The dry climate and the bracing breeze keep pests to a minimum, resulting in sparse spraying. 


Matured 4 months on lees. Un-wooded. A pale yellow color, this wine smells fresh, vibrant and inviting, with lively aromas of citrus, lemon-lime, yellow apple, green melon and a touch of mineral dust. Lightweight and well balanced, it has a bright acidic seam and fresh, zippy citrus and green apple tones, with hints of sea breeze and limestone minerality. Bright and sassy, this is well balanced and oh-so-easy to like and drink. 


The American critic Robert Parker once described this wine as such: Understated and less tropical than some of the better unoaked Chardonnays, this wine possesses far better balance and sheer drinkability–not to mention more finesse–than 99% of the world’s Chardonnay I have experienced.
