Producer: Rustenberg Estate
This is a wine of real quality made with 100% chardonnay. Fermentation and maturation in new oak barrels has added a richness to the fruit. A delicious wine, dry with lovely balance of luscious ripe tropical and honeyed fruits and a long fruity finish. An impressive Stellenbosch Chardonnay that wouldn’t look out of place in Corton-Charlemagne with its complex leesy character. A mosaic of smoke and flint adds considerable interest to this charming wine. Plush aromas of buttery lemons, biscuits and honeydew melon translate well onto the palate. This wine combines power with restraint, richness with acidity, due in part to expertly handled oak. The intensity is palpable, and the flavour and aroma characteristics last a lifetime in the mouth.

Deep straw yellow colour with a gold sheen. This hand crafted wine consists of 100% Chardonnay. The nose and palate show a provocative mixture of nuttiness an marzipan with an underlying oiliness whilst the finish is balanced with crisp, clean acidity and great length. A delicious Burgundian style chardonnay with lots of class.
