Lothian Vineyard Selection Chardonnay South African White Wine 750 mL

$24.99

Awards: Tim Atkins MW, Decanter  92 points

The entry is surprisingly bracing. The fine acidic backbone that gives this wine a lively tension asserts itself immediately. Flavours of yellow citrus, pineapple and nectarines come to the fore. Wood is noted but it is very much in the background. It provides a fragrant base and some texture to the mid palate. This wine has good length and all the while the flavours change in the mouth, the acid stands guard ensuring a very clean finish.

 

Description

Product info from the winery:

Tasting Notes: The colour is very bright and clear with flashes of yellow and gold.
The nose is quite prominent and complex. It starts with notes of very ripe oranges, bananas and tangerine peel. These light fruit notes move to the heavier ones of a tarte tatin made with pineapples.
