(From 2011 Vintage) [Wine Spectator, 90] "Ripe, with a toasty frame, juicy and focused, featuring Bosc pear, fig and Granny Smith apple notes, backed by a toasted hazelnut edge on the finish. This has depth and drive."
(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 Stellenbosch Chardonnay has a ripe, tropical fruit-tinged bouquet with hints of mango and fresh apricot intermingling with vanilla pod. The palate is medium-bodied with a rounded, vanilla-tinged entry and constitutes a commercially minded Chardonnay that ticks all the right boxes: low acidity, soft mouthfeel and a seductive smear of creamy new oak. In other words, a crowd-pleasing wine.
