Much lauded chardonnay from the cool climate Hemel en Aarde (did I spell it right? It means heaven and earth if I understand Afrikaans by now) in the eastern parts of the South African Cape winelands. Nice freshness and structure while still providing bright fruit and creamy texture.

A ripe flashy style with lots of ginger mango creamed papaya and peach notes and a long creamy finish that lets a grilled hazelnut note linger. A touch shy on zip on the finish. For fans of the style. Drink now. -JM Wine Spectator.

Better is the outstanding 2009 Chardonnay that is sourced from Hemel-en-Aarde and Elgin and aged for 10 months in 225-liter French oak with 34% new (the rest 2nd fill). The nose is beautifully defined with scents of melon, honeysuckle and white peach... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
