Rustenberg is a well-known South African producer of high-quality Chardonnays and the Stellenbosch Chardonnay is one of the estate's three flagship wines embodying their house style.
Careful tending and selection in the vineyard followed by traditional wild barrel fermentation and maturation produces a classic Chardonnay balancing the expression of fruit, freshness,
full malolactic fermentation and the influence of oak.
Rustenberg Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2020 will benefit from careful bottle ageing of up to eight years from vintage and has excellent maturation potential under ideal cellaring conditions.
