South Africa Longridge Chardonnay 2019 750ml
• Introduction 簡介
The name of this range comes from the early days of settlement in the Cape. The VOC (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) prohibited farmers from trading with anyone other than the ‘Compagnie’, but this lead to big unhappiness. Therefore, when the ‘vrijburgers’ and local tribesmen wanted to do business, they had to go to a secluded area in the mountain-range to trade without interference. This corner was where Stellenbosch Mountain and Helderberg ‘join’ and so it became known as ‘Konkelberg’.
• Terroir 風土
Rooted in the oldest viticulture soil in the world, it is made up of decomposed granite on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. This vineyard enjoys the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the day and cool night air flowing down the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries and good, natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and sunny warm summers.
它植根於世界上最古老的葡萄栽培土壤，由海德堡山下坡的腐爛花崗岩組成。 這個葡萄園在白天享受來自福爾斯灣（大西洋）的清爽涼爽的微風和從山上流下的涼爽的夜間空氣，從而使漿果均勻成熟，並具有良好的天然酸度。 擁有近海洋性的宏觀氣候，冬季寒冷潮濕，夏季陽光明媚。
Longridge Chardonnay 2019 釀造過程：
The vineyards are meticulously cared for by hand. The crop is reduced to ensure maximum quality. Organic and biodynamic practices are employed by not using any pesticides, herbicides or chemical sprays.100% estate grown.
The grapes were harvested early morning and whole bunch pressed. The juice was left to settle in stainless steel tanks and transferred to French oak barrels, Amphora’s and Cement Eggs. Almost no sulphur was added during the first 6-9 months. Both the primary and secondary fermentation started naturally and no enzymes, fining agents, commercial yeast or filtration was used. The wine was barrel-matured for 12 months before being bottled. Distinct notes of minerality, combined beautifully with citrus and lime aromas on the nose are complemented by shortbread and dessert peaches on the palate, ending in a refreshing, lingering and perfectly balanced finish.
葡萄在清晨收穫，整串被壓榨。將果汁留在不銹鋼罐中，然後轉移到法國橡木桶、Amphora's 和 Cement Eggs 中。在最初的 6-9 個月內幾乎沒有添加硫。初級和次級發酵都自然開始，不使用酶、澄清劑、商業酵母或過濾。該酒在裝瓶前在桶中陳釀 12 個月。獨特的礦物香調，與柑橘和酸橙的香氣完美結合，口感上輔以奶油酥餅和甜點桃子，以清新、持久和完美平衡的收尾。
