    Longridge Chardonnay 2019

    With a biodynamic view on winemaking Longridge not only look at the roots of the vines, making sure they are healthy and alive, they also look up at the sky, to the moon, and the phases of the moon. Made by Jasper Raats, this wine showcases the terroir for which Longridge is known. Rooted in the oldest viticulture soil in the world, it is made up of decomposed granite on the lower slopes of the Helderberg. This vineyard enjoyed the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the day & cool air at night 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 dry, warm summers, with the Helderberg area being the coolest in the Stellenbosch region.

    What can you expect?

    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.
