Elgin Vintners Chardonnay, South Africa

£17.95
Quantity:

The Elgin Vintners are a partnership of six dedicated grape growers who, believing in the excellence of the terroir and diversity of their vineyards, have combined their resources to cultivate and produce a range of high quality wines. They hail from the beautiful Elgin Valley, a high inland plateau completely surrounded by mountains, seventy kilometres along the coast from Cape Town. This cool climate region was long known for its apple orchards but since the turn of the century quality conscious winemakers have been taking advantage of the temperate conditions, afforded by the high altitudes and cooling winds from the Atlantic.

Tasting Notes: The nose leads with white stone fruit, minerality, and the lemon and limey notes that we have come to associate with Elgin Chardonnays. A broad, rich palate on which citrus explodes in your mouth combined with some fresh kiwi fruit flavours, nicely balanced with a lively fruit acidity and subtle wooding lend a satisfying, lengthy and textured finish to this Chardonnay. Whilst it shows much poise and elegance at present, this wine will reward you with further careful and patient maturation.
