About this wine

The Stellenbosch Reserve Moederkerk Chardonnay is rare venture into white wine production for the team at Rust en Vrede – produced as a tribute to the history and achievement of Stellenbosch. In the glass the Moederkerk is restrained and elegant with notes of peach, candyfloss and figs which develop to reveal richer aromas of crème caramel and macadamia nuts due to the light oak influence. Initial notes of citrus peel keep the aromas fresh and light which in turn helps to add complexity.  The palate is well-balanced with a round body and clean fruit flavours.  This wine is upfront with citrus, nectarines and ripe melons and alive with pure fruit flavours that lend themselves to an opulent body that is firmly structured with a subtle yet lengthy finish.

    string(513) "Possibly the most famous grape variety in the world, Chardonnay has found a home in pretty much every corner of the wine world. 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."
