Crystallum Description

A linear, steely and Chablis-esque wine with lime leaf, green apple and litchi up front. Aromas of Frangipani flowers and oat cakes arrive as the wine opens up, with subtle lemon meringue and buttered toast flavours adding sumptuousness against zippy acidity and a pithy, chalky texture. A long and languorous finish.

The Agnes Chardonnay is named after our Great Grandmother, Agnes Floyd, who arrived in South Africa at the tender age of 14. Sturdy in build and character, she is reputed to be the first lady to have had a driver's licence in the city of Cape Town. This multiple vineyard blend is made to reflect the resilience and strength of Agnes, with each vineyard contributing complexity to the final wine.

Sourced from select vineyards in the Hemel-en-Aarde and Overberg regions. Produced using the traditional method of transferring the whole grape clusters straight from harvesting into the press and running the juice off into a settling tank. Fermented and aged in 228, 500-litre French oak barrels as well as in foudres. Naturally fermented in barrel, where it remains for 9 months before bottling. No SO2 or enzymes are added prior to fermentation.

“We strive to find a balance between using old-world methods and traditions while keeping in tune with the vineyards we source our fruit from. This philosophy is followed through in the cellar, where we nurture what comes off the vines rather than manipulating the fruit to fit a predetermined outcome.”
