Wine Review: This very dark yellow colored Reserve Chardonnay from Stellenbosch is very good. It opens with an oak and pineapple like bouquet with a hint of smoke. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, creamy and rich. The flavor profile is a concentrated vanilla oak influenced pineapple with notes of banana creme. I also detected hints of pear, minerality and a touch of peach towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors are very nicely prolonged. If you are a fan of dense oak influenced Chardonnay's this one is for you. I would pair it with wild mushroom and chicken ravioli with a light cream sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Estate Reserve Chardonnay displays a wonderful bright color. The nose exhibits vibrant citrus, lime zest and flint with hints of apple with vanilla and butterscotch. The lush, creamy texture is underpinned with a beautiful minerality, fresh citrus notes and hints of toasted almond and vanilla.
