Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2020, Rustenberg

£14.95 per bottle

About this wine

Rustenberg is a well-known producer of high quality Chardonnays and the Stellenbosch Chardonnay embodies Rustenberg’s house style. Careful tending and selection in the vineyard followed by traditional wild barrel fermentation and maturation produces a classic Chardonnay balancing the expression of fruit, freshness, full malolactic fermentation and the influence of oak.  The 2020 Rustenberg Chardonnay offers notes of apricot, coconut and orange peel on the nose followed by flavours of marzipan, sponge cake and citrus rounded off with carefully judged oak and balanced, fresh acidity

Aging potential: 8+ years from vintage under ideal cellaring conditions

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."
