Your rating for Rustenberg Five Soldiers Chardonnay 2017:Rate Rustenberg Five Soldiers Chardonnay 2017:

4 /5

- Named after five large stone pine trees on a hill standing sentinel over the Five Soldiers vineyards. The Five Soldiers is the apex of Chardonnay at Rustenberg and is a highly collected wine.
- Characterised by measured power and complexity, designed to be drunk with food and benefiting from a few years of careful cellaring. It illustrates the true character of each vintage and is a barrel selection of the finest batches of Chardonnay each year.

4/5

Especially its colour pleased me . Predominating aromas of white flowers. Elegant and light with a smokey touch.
Rustenberg wines are perfect with grilled or cooked prawns.
I enjoyed it very much and in good company.
