      Capensis Western Cape Chardonnay 2016

      Beyond the Label

      Its name taken from the Latin word for “from the cape,” Capensis wines are produced in South Africa, one of the oldest winemaking regions in the world. The ancient soils, dramatic landscapes and historic vineyards of Stellenbosch, Overberg and Robertson are the foundation for Capensis, which honors the greatness of South Africa. Winemaker Graham Weerts has carefully selected the finest Chardonnay vineyards within the Western Cape to create these expressive wines.

      For this wine, 40 percent was fermented in new French oak, with the balance in neutral oak. All the wine is aged on the lees and is hand-stirred monthly throughout 10 months of aging to soften the texture.
