Stellenbosch Reserve Chardonnay 2021
First conceived in 2005, the wine evolved from a single Bordeaux-style blend, to a range that reflects the Stellenbosch viticultural landscape. The Stellenbosch Reserve now encompasses seven wines, red and white, focussing on the classic Stellenbosch varieties of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Cinsault, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines, like the place, capture that beautiful balance between accessibility and seriousness. The pronounced floral aroma of apple blossom combines with pineapple, cantaloupe, and lime cordial. Fresh lime and lemon cream are prominent on the palate, with crisp, citrusy acidity. Intense primary fruit with well-integrated oak that offers a biscuity flavour of shortbread. The Stellenbosch Reserve Chardonnay 2021 displays vibrant fruit and a lingering finish. An easy drinking white wine.
