Natalie's Score: 90/100
From Cathedral Cellars, this Western Cape wine region, a 100% Chardonnay produced by winemaker, Wim Truter. Fresh with ripe red apple, pear and lemon pudding flavours on the palate. Good acidity for food. Enjoy now and for the next three years.
Chardonnay food pairings: raspberry braised partridge, pork filet au gratin with green herbs, grilled chicken breast with cranberry and red currant sauce.
Glorious Game Wine

Reviews and Ratings
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This wine always, always, always punches above its weight. Super reminiscient of Meursault, only for a fraction of the price. This wine is nutty, smoky, and loaded with apples, key lime, and pie crust. There's some dried floral elements here as well. The wine is just so, so good for the price. Even those who eschew Chardonnay are bound to be intrigued. 91 Points.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Excellent value for the price ($16,95 in Ontario!). Aromas of lemon-lime, apple, and a hint of macadamia nuts. Smooth on the palate, with crisp fruit and a slightly herbaceous and spicy finish. Enjoy with herb roasted chicken.
|Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This wine never disappoints.
A wonderful expression of Chardonnay from South Africa.
Rich golden hues, with alluring aromas of apples, lime, and almond paste croissants swirl in the glass. Baked apple pie flavours persist, with a medium+ body.
Wonderful paired with chicken pot pie or white sauce vegetable lasagna.
Tasted July 2021.
|From the Western Cape wine region, the Chardonnay wine grapes for Cathedral Cellar 2016 were sourced mainly from the Elgin wine region. This is a full-bodied, rich and lush 100% Chardonnay with butterscotch, sweet spice, toasty oak and vanilla flavours on the palate finishing lemon zesty. Delish. Enjoy with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews|
