It’s not every day that you see the fine wines of the Stellenbosch on this web site but the works of Rustenberg are too good not to mention. South Africa has a fine history of Chardonnay and these wines are definitely made in a fuller style. Lifted aromas of apricot and honeyed marzipan lead to a generous palate with a core of citrus making for a wine that is a meal in itself.
Apricot, coconut and orange peel aromas followed by flavours of marzipan, sponge cake and citrus rounded off with carefully judged oak and balanced, fresh acidity.
Ageing potential: 8+ years from vintage under ideal cellaring conditions.
