Love this style of South African chardonnay. Toasty and rich but also mouth-watering and vibrant: it's got it all. This wine was aged in 40% new and 60% second-use oak barrels for a year. Toasted almond and green apple on the nose with lime-orange citrus on the palate. Balanced and lovely with a long finish. Wow!

Chardonnay food pairings: turkey burgers, crab cakes, chicken breast, lobster in butter sauce, cheese.

Loads of toasty oak here on this full-bodied Chardonnay. Apricot and orange zest notes. All-embracing and mouth-filling. - Community Wine Reviews
