R290.00 | Club R246.50

 

This Chardonnay is from our oldest vineyard – planted in 1989 – and continuously produces an exceptional wine. The lively aromas of orange marmalade, lemon custard and ripe stone fruits are followed by layer after layer of poached pear and candied pineapple on the palate.

 

The soil found in this block is decomposed granite with significant amounts of quart in it, hence its name.

Tasting Notes

On the nose the wine is bursting with aromas of orange marmalade, lemon custard and ripe stone fruits. The lively aromas are followed by layer after layer of poached pear and candied pineapple on the palate.
