Our Cape to Cape wines are approachable, fruit driven wines made for enjoying now and over the short term. All this Chardonnay was fermented with oak; some in older French oak (5 year old barriques), the balance fermented with new oak staves to produce a wine with good palate weight and a touch of complexity, while retaining all its delicious fresh fruit flavours.
Bright and clear with a light gold colour.
Fresh and lifted on the nose with the attractive ‘stone fruit’ characters that are the hallmark of this variety; lovely aromas of light peach and white nectarine.
This is a Chardonnay that is delicious for drinking now and over the next year or so. Its generous, peachy melon fruit flavours are beautifully balanced by the lightly drying, fresh acidity. It has a lovely silkiness on the palate with great mouth feel and also the tiniest touch of oak tannin which contributes to it’s to good length. A great match with all foods!
