I had the opportunity to take some pictures at Wemmershoek Primary School | High School Franschhoek | Kusasa Project during the Literary Franschhoek Festival 2015  with some authors reading their books to the kids.

I am always happy to see the power of reading a story to young kids look at their faces!

Porcupine Ridge Chardonnay

Porcupine Ridge Chardonnay

For this maiden vintage, grapes from Elgin, Wellington and Robertson were used. The wine was partially fermented in barrel and then racked from its gross lees into older French oak barriques to accentuate the fresh citrus fruit aromas Chardonnay offers. Battonage was done once a week for 3 months to add a creamy mouthfeel to the wine.
TASTING NOTES: The wine has a zesty, limey nose showing ripe lemons, grapefruit and even a hint of lemongrass. Vibrant citrus fruit flavours dominate the mid-palate with integrated acidity, a medium body and a fresh mouthfeel, all supported by understated French oak flavours. The finish is exceptionally smooth with hints of clementine and orange peel.
