BRUCE JACK RESERVE CHARDONNAY
A special selection of grapes are destined for Bruce Jack reserve whites from selected vineyards. More importantly, we receive them very early in the morning, while still cool. Grapes are crushed, juice drained and skins pressed. After the juice is settled, clear juice is used to ferment in an attempt to highlight the vineyard specific aromatics. Special tanks are given extended lees contact.
Intriguing and complex nose with pear, peach, clementine, a touch of cep mushrooms and freshly buttered roosterbrood. On the palate apricot, pear, hint of basil, delicately framed in some vanilla oak.
Can be enjoyed now or over the next few years. Or cellar at a cool temperature for 2 years.
