R78.002020 | Chardonnay | White
The Classic Selection range of cultivar-specific wines comprises distinct, carefully blended wines from different parts of the renowned Paarl wine region.
The style is marked by climatic and maritime influences of the nearby ocean and the Boland mountains that result in fresh, fruit-driven wines reflecting typical varietal character and flavour.
The vineyards are situated in the surrounding Paarl and cooler Coastal regions. Chardonnay vines prefer colder winter temperatures and are planted on the lower south-facing slopes. Chardonnay grapes ripen in the early to mid-harvest season, producing grapes with crisp acidity and firm fruit structure. The combination of selected vineyards and the use of different planting clones are intended to add complexity and character to the final blend.
This Chardonnay expresses flavours of fresh citrus, pineapple and tropical notes. An elegant unwooded wine which reflects this varietal in a fresh, ripe and crisp style. Delicious with shellfish and white meat dishes of fish or poultry.
This crisp, fruity Chardonnay is characterised by vibrant freshness and upfront fruit flavours and aromas. It presents a medley of tropical fruit flavours with prominent litchi, passion fruit and lime. An elegant wine with typical Chardonnay flavours. Delicious with meat carpaccio, seafood and salads – or simply on its own.
