Rustenberg - Unwooded Chardonnay 2010South African White Wine
This is an elegant Chardonnay, with a scent of lemon, mandarin orange and hints of pine needles, complemented by a crisp finish on the palate.
A lovely cold, wet winter in 2009 allowed for good, even budding of the vineyards during spring, and then the beautiful, warm, sunny days in summer resulted in great flavor and colour development in the berries.
Full, fruit flavours and soft tannins with good aromatics and ideal acidity made 2010 and excellent vintage. Another great year for Chardonnay!
Harvested from the 26th of January 2010 until the 8th of February 2010.
