  • Mouth: Dry taste, with a full mineral flavour complemented with citrus fruit flavours and crisp acidity.

APPELLATION: Stellenbosch

VINEYARD: Meerlust Estate. Located in South Africa, this estate is named after the ocean, meaning literally ‘pleasure of the ocean'. Collected from four different vineyards within the estate, the different soil types contribute to the mineral flavour and the rich texture found in this Chardonnay. The grapes benefit from the ocean breeze that bathes the south-facing vineyards, and the combination of old and new grapes bring a delicious character to this vine.

GRAPES: 100% Chardonnay.

AGEING: Barrel matured for nine months before bottling.

PREPARATION: The grapes are handpicked. Fermentation takes place 40% in new tight grain Allier French oak and 60% second fill 300 litre barrels. For half of the barrels the fermentation was assisted with specially selected Chardonnay yeast, while the other half was left to ferment naturally. The following step was malolactic fermentation, and finally the maturation process in wooden barrels. The end result is an elegant liquor with an appealing flavour and a full body. Meerlust Chardonnay 2018 is the touch of elegance and sophistication that you were missing.

PAIRING: This Chardonnay pairs perfectly with grilled salmon, pork belly, roast chicken, roast pork, and some cheeses, such as cheddar and gruyere.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 12 - 14°C

ALCOHOL: 12.9%

Citrus hints of lemon and grapefruit. A slightly bitter end.
I just love it.
