Estate Chardonnay 2016, Paul Cluver Wines

£17.50 per bottle

About this wine

Given the location and altitude of Cluver’s vineyards, it is no great surprise that delicate, refreshing and aromatic styles are produced here. Combine these positives with the winemaking prowess of Andries Burger and the results are amplified vastly. This isn’t just Chardonnay (as an old TV ad used to tell us…), this is possibly South Africa’s greatest value Chardonnay. Think a combination of Meursault and Chablis: dense honeyed, hazlenut tinged fruit but with a mineral rich, stone like freshness which enlivens the palate, leading to high toned balance. This Chardonnay is alive and if you haven’t tasted a bottle yet; you really are missing out!

From crisp, flinty Chablis styles to full-bodied, oaky, rich Napa Valley Chardonnay it is a variety which has the ability to morph according to the climate or winemaking philosophy. It also has the capacity to produce amongst the greatest white wines in the world. Some praise indeed for this chameleon variety, the likes of which may only truly be matched by Riesling or Chenin Blanc."
