Stony Brook Ghost Gum White 2020
About The Wine
Ghost Gum White is our flagship white wine, made up entirely of Chardonnay from two unique vineyards on Stony Brook. 100% barrel-fermented in 40% new French oak barriques and matured for 12 months, this wine is supremely focussed, highlighting the brightness of Chardonnay grown in Franschhoek’s Bo-Hoek. The early picking dates of the grapes ensure lovely acidity and ageing potential.
Vibrant, golden yellow in colour with glints of light green. The nose is led by bright lemon and lime, with the perfect amount of oak and butterscotch backing up the natural fruit. The weight of the wine is in great harmony, showing linear acidity and richness in the finish, all the while supported by delicate oak structure. Another classic vintage, this wine will age gracefully for the next 10 years and pairs beautifully with rich, creamy pasta dishes.
