Wildeberg (‘wild mountain’) is literally a place ‘on the edge’, of Franschhoek and the mountains themselves. Formally an equestrian farm, the land has never before been planted under vine but this wild and magical mountain has an undefinable energy .
The fact that only 10% of the property itself can be planted underlines the wild character of this place.
100% Chardonnay from the Banhoek area. Whole bunch pressed and naturally settled for 48 hours. Then naturally fermented in old 600 litre French oak barrels and matured in barrel for 4 months. Then bottled to undergo second fermentation. The wine spent 30 months on its lees before disgorgement. No dosage was added, thus a Brut Nature.
This Sparkling wine has a nose of proving sourdough with a fine bead, the palate releases notes of fresh almonds, warm sand, and apricot kernel
