BRUCE JACK RESERVE “VLOERMOER”

FORTIFIED FLOR-FERMETNED CHARDONNAY

In the year 2000 I made 17 barrels of Fino sherry using flor yeast from the University of Stellenbosch. I chose a shy-bearing single vineyard of Champagne-clone Chardonnay from Stellenbosch for the job. After selling 10 of the barrels as a fino-style sherry, we kept 5 and matured the wine in the Amontillado style. We eventually bottled this in 2013 and bottle-aged the wine for a further four years before release.

WINE VINTAGE COMPETITION/REVIEW RESULTS

This is a surprisingly versatile wine. It loves a 24 hour, slow-cooked black Daal curry. And amazingly goes well with sushi, especially sustainable white meat sashimi. And perhaps most surprising of all, try this with deep fried haggis bitterballen with a bernaise dipping sauce.
