MURATIE ISABELLA CHARDONNAY 2019

Every wine tells a story at Muratie, the historic Stellenbosch Estate that dates back to 1685.

The story: For Rijk and Kim Melck, there could be only one name for their Burgundian-style Chardonnay, the name of their first child, Isabella, who today, as a young woman, is classic and elegant just like the Chardonnay.

In the cellar: The Isabella Chardonnay 2019 was made from the free-run juice of hand-harvested, whole-bunch pressed grapes, and barrel fermented (40% wild fermentation). 60% underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine matured for 9 months in 500L French oak barrels (30% new).

Tasting notes: A beautifully fresh, understated and elegant Chardonnay with an enticing peach-blossom fragrance, ripe stone fruit, melon and citrus flavours with hints of hazelnuts and vanilla cream from subtle oaking, and a lingering mineral finish.

Purchase: Muratie Isabella Chardonnay 2019 is available at the estate, online at                             https://www.muratie.co.za/wine/buy-wine/ and at select fine wine merchants around the country.
