Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay from South Africa opens with a pear and butterscotch like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and elegant. The flavor profile is a tasty mild pear with nicely integrated oak and a touch of butter. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Chardonnay is very food friendly and it would pair perfectly with lobster with drawn butter. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This elegant Chardonnay displays a bouquet of lifted apricot blossom, lemon and suggestions of vanilla and oak. The palate shows prominent pineapple and ripe pear characters, interlaced with chalky acidity. This wine is creamy and nutty with a soft refined palate and finishes with great intensity.
