Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay from South Africa is for oak lovers. It opens with pleasant vanilla oak and mild lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, rich and savory. The flavor profile is an oak infused apple with notes of lemon. I also detected a touch of butter rum candy. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a while after the wine is gone. This tasty Chard would pair well with chicken and wild mushroom ravioli with a butter cream sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This elegant Chardonnay displays a bouquet of apricot blossom and lemon with a delicate vanilla nuance. The intense yet soft and refined palate shows a prominent pineapple, citrus and ripe pear character, interlaced with chalky acidity and hints of toasted hazelnut.
