2016 will go down as one of the hottest, driest of seasons. Canopy management was very important to make sure fruit did not get sunburned and aromatic wines maintained fresh aromas and acidity. Another important factor this year was the ability to irrigate at crucial development stages of the vine which Reif Estate is capable of. Look for great reds and well balanced fruity whites.
100% stainless steel fermented and aged. This wine shows some true Chardonnay without the influence of oak or malolactic fermentation. This gives the wine its fruity character.
A cooler year allowed the chardonnay grapes to maintained great acidity making this a food friendly wine. The fermentation was cool and slow and a specially selected yeast was used. This style was not oaked aged and carries a fresh fruity style.
Citrus and apple aromas promise a bright and lively wine. Refreshes the palate with flavours of apple, pear, peach and a lemony twist. Pair with any white fish, roast chicken, scallop and shrimp dishes. Also will complement pasta primavera or a summer salad.
