Named after the first owner of Vrede en Lust’s eldest daughter, Marguerite de Savoye, this wine is just as flamboyant as she was.
The grapes are crushed and pressed. The juice are transported to French oak barrels (25% new) and inoculated with specific yeast strains. Malolactic fermentation takes place in the barrel. The wine was matured on the lees for 11 months and bottled. Only 25% new oak was used in order to reach the goal of creating an elegant style Chardonnay.
The grapes are either whole-bunch pressed or berry sorted after which the juice are barrel fermented. The result is a vivid, complex, fruitforward Chardonnay with gentle oak intervention on the elegant palate.
