The Stellenbosch Reserve Moederkerk Chardonnay is rare venture into white wine production for the team at Rust en Vrede. Perfumed floral notes waft out of the glass, showing enticing orange blossom with buttermilk, lime and green apples. Firm acidity adds lightness to a medium bodied palate, with citrus fruits, granny smith apples and pears. A subtle oak component of butterscotch and vanilla adds complexity and body to the wine. The savoury finish has a lemony tang shot through with a saline note.
The wines of the Stellenbosch Reserve pay homage to iconic buildings of Stellenbosch town. These landmarks represent the legacy of the town, in the same way that the wines represent classic varietal expressions of the Stellenbosch terroir. Through a combination of wine, architecture and heritage the wines can tell a story that is uniquely Stellenbosch.
The Building: The Mother Church (Moederkerk)
The beautiful Moederkerk is an unpretentious yet prominent example of Gothic Revival architecture. Located in the heart of Stellenbosch and surrounded by oaks, its familiar steeple watches over residents going about their daily business. The clean, striking beauty of the ‘Mother Church’ resembles the bright, elegant 2019 Chardonnay.
