The Story of Isabella
Two German Shepherds – named Frank and Stella – guard the Muratie farm. Turkeys, geese and ducks are on permanent pest patrol. Hundreds of bird species flitter around the grounds. But closest to Rijk and Kim Melck’s heart must have been the butterfly kisses from beautiful baby Isabella at bedtime. And it was after her that they named their Chardonnay.
Made from hand-harvested, whole-bunch pressed grapes, the Isabella Chardonnay has a ripe, full-bodied nose with a hint of melon, pear and apple. The integration of the subtle oaking and the minerality of the wine creates an elegant mouth feel and a lasting finish – the result of ageing in French Oak, quite appropriately, for 9 months.
