Weltevrede Estate Chardonnay Rusted Soil 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Just outside Bonnievale, in the picturesque Robertson Valley, lies Weltevrede, meaning “well satisfied” - the Jonker Family Wine Estate whose proud heritage stretches back over many years, and where, since 1912, the art of winemaking has been passed from generation to generation. Today, this legacy is reflected in specialized ranges of wines enjoyed by connoisseurs at home and abroad. This is a delicately structured wine with an abundance of natural citrus intensity, well balanced with creamy lees and smoky oak character

In 1969 Lourens purchased neighbouring farms which he consolidated into 150 hectare Estate.
