Extremely light gold in color with flavors and scents of ripe grapefruit, yellow apple and quince. Finishes crisply with citrus zest and an herbal note. At 14.5% alcohol there's some power behind those flavors, but the wine finishes clean with nary a trace of heat.

Rich, with pear, fig and hazelnut notes that stay elegant and stylish. Ripe, juicy finish. Drink now through 2002.

More on the flinty, elegant side, but with hints of apple and fig as well. Nice cut on the finish. This might flesh out a touch more in the coming months. From one of South Africa's value producers. Drink now through 2003.

Juicy and forward, with clean fresh apple, pear and fig flavors and not toast. Thank you. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

The perfect antidote to flashy, heavily wooded Chardonnays, this unoaked bottling retains its pure fruit character. Crisp and clean, it dances on the palate with refreshing flavors of apple, pear, citrus, and melon accented with hints of mineral and spice. The grapes were hand picked, destemmed, and crushed, and the free run juice was settled overnight before undergoing a cool, controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. For additional richness and complexity, it was aged on a small portion of the lees of the 2008 Rustenberg Chardonnay for several months, with regular batonnage. The wine was racked and stabilized before bottling.
