Chardonnay 2021


This IGP cuvée white wine is made 100% with Chardonnay from old vines, and truly represents the expression of « New World » winegrowers on one of the most beautiful terroirs in France. The elegant label on this bottle traces the Grier family’s story through a stylized illustration of a world map, on which the journey between South Africa and South of France is indicated.


Grape variety

Chardonnay 100%


Schistose marls. The vines are trellised and the grapes are harvested at optimum maturity in order to express a maximum of fruit, while maintaining a beautiful freshness.


The grapes are pressed after a skin maceration of 4 to 5 hours. After cooling, the juices remain in static settling for 48 hours, then are cleared to be fermented at 14°C, a portion in stainless stell vat and a portion in oak barrels. Once the vinification is completed, the two parts are assembled ( 30% vinified in barrels) Bottling is carried out quickly, always with the aim of optimizing the freshness of the product.


Notes of citrus and white fruits


The palate presents a good balance between freshness, minerality and volume. Brioche notes are brought by the wood fermentation.
