Uva Mira The Mira Chardonnay

Uva Mira The Mira Chardonnay has a gentle oak style, creamy texture and enticing minerality.
Green-straw colour. Flinty minerals underpin the lemon-lime bouquet and all its layers of fragrant white flowers, subtle marzipan and orange zest shavings. Superbly elegant with an intense purity, refreshing acidity and rich, creamy texture. Layers of zesty lime confit flavours with some green melon, subtle pistachio and marzipan. Closes in a long, precise and very mineral finish.
100% Chardonnay. The grapes come from selected estate vineyards in Helderberg, 9 kilometres from False Bay. The vineyards are North-west and North-east facing with Cumulic soils (Tukulu) and an altitude of 385 metres above sea level.
Delicate hand-picking of the berries before transportation to the cellar in the early morning while temperatures are cool. The fruit goes through a meticulous hand selection on a sorting table upon arrival at the cellar. Fermentation for 9 months in French oak barrels, 30 % new.
