Op die Berg Chardonnay 2016

R 175.00

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

Our Chardonnay is made from grapes grown in a vineyard established on a family farm famous for apples and pears on top of the Witzenberg Mountain in Ceres.

This newly declared appellation of Ceres Plateau is situated 960 meters in altitude, with soft shale soils and extremely cold winters. In some years the vines are completely covered in snow during winter – unique in South Africa and making the climate truly continental and ideal for Chardonnay in particular.

The wine has a bright green to straw hue. On the nose citrus flavours of grapefruit and marmalade that on palate is well supported by soft vanilla undertones. Great length and weight in the structure of the wine resulting in an ideal food partner.

It has the potential to mature for the next 4 to 5 years resulting in an even fuller and richer wine.
