Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2018, Leeu Passant

£51.95 per bottle

About this wine

Leeu Passant Stellenbosch Chardonnay has aromas of yellow stone fruits with hints of cloves. The textured palate has notes of peaches and lemon curd, with a touch of salinity and well integrated oak character, all balanced by a zesty acidity. The finish is long, with a beautiful purity.

Serving suggestion: Best served at 10-12°C

Ageing potential: This wine will show optimally when decanted within the first 3 years after bottling and will reward if cellared properly over 10 years.

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."
