Characteristics of Springfield Methode Ancienne Chardonnay

Springfield Methode Ancienne Chardonnay is a barrel-aged white wine made with the Chardonnay variety by Springfield Estate, a winery in Western Cape South Coast, Western Cape (South Africa).

Owned by the Bruwer family, it is run by the fourth generation of producers and the ninth generation of French Huguenots who arrived in South Africa in 1688 with Loire Valley vines in hand. Taking into account the unique characteristics of the rocky soils that the Robertson valley is full of, the Bruwers have managed to extract the maximum expression of the terroir with top quality grapes and making their wines in a Burgundy style.

Springfield Methode Ancienne Chardonnay comes from vines aged over 25 years old. These are strains planted in soils with chalk and limestone formations and with a total yield of 2.5 tons per hectare. Traditional viticulture is practiced and the harvest is carried out at night to maintain the grapes’ freshness until they reach the winery.

When the Springfield Methode Ancienne Chardonnay grapes reach the winery, they ferment without contact with the skins and with native yeasts for 55 days. They are then placed into 600-litre French oak barrels for 12 months; 50% in new barrels and the other 50% in second-year barrels. Once the wine is ready, it is bottled without being filtered, refined or stabilised.

Springfield Methode Ancienne Chardonnay is a classic style white wine that is comparable to the most seductive Burgundy, where the full splendour of the fruit is revealed, balanced with just the right amount of wood.
