2016 West Cape Howe Old School Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Bright with a light-medium straw colour

Aroma: Lovely aromas of fresh, toasty French oak with light buttery characters (reminiscent of a freshly baked almond croissant!)

Palate: Has those ‘baked pastry’ characters along with the peachy/stone fruit flavours typical of Chardonnay. There’s a good level of toastiness from the oak used during fermentation, complemented by the buttery pastry flavours from the malolactic fermentation. A wine with good texture and palate weight, the delicious ‘peach crumble’ fruit flavours are complexed by the toasty oak and a gentle acidity on the finish

Cellar potential: Certainly very drinkable now and to be enjoyed over the next couple of years. Well suited with many dishes, e.g. your roast chicken dinner!

Alc/vol: 13.7%
