Springfield Estate Chardonnay Wild Yeast 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Brother and sister team Abrie and Jeanette Bruwer are the complete opposite of your typical university trained have-cultured-yeast-will-travel flying winemakers. Their wines are all about their rocky, unforgiving terroir in Robertson and stand head and shoulders above most producers for sheer quality. Their obsession is reflected in Abrie's philosophy; "I only want to sell wine I am proud of and I will only get a limited number of chances to do that in my life." This unwooded Chardonnay, fermented with native yeast present in the vineyard, abounds with flavours of pineapple and pear drops. Deliciously complex in style!

Springfield Estate is a winery located in Robertson Valley in the Western Cape of South Africa that has been in the Bruwer family (descendants of Bruères of the Loire, France) for four generations. The grapes for these handcrafted wines are grown in lime-rich soils with rocky, clay and sandy elements. The nearby Breede River acts as a climate moderator, cooling the vineyards in the heat of summer to balance the fruit. Their motto: “from the grape to the bottle with care and passion.” The estate specializes in Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux blends and Pinot Noir.  Read less
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
