Cape Indaba Chardonnay Western Cape 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

A medium-bodied wine with pear and pineapple aromas on the nose, hints of butterscotch, orange peel and lemons. Good acidity marries well with the oak component culminating in a long but clean finish.

“Indaba” is the Zulu word for “a meeting of the minds,” or a traditional gathering of tribal leaders for a sharing of ideas. The brand was created as a celebration of the democratization process in South Africa, and from its inception, the wines have conveyed the spirit of South Africa to American consumers. A portion of the proceeds from the Indaba wines supports a scholarship for formerly disenfranchised South Africans who are interested in wine-related careers. Through growth of the brand and via the affiliated scholarship, Indaba is proud to be a part of the positive changes that are altering the face of South Africa’s wine industry. Read less

A bit melony on the nose but rather reticent overall width some apple and tangerine notes adding a touch of nuance. Bright on entry, this turns a bit plump in the mouth with a fair amount of volume but not a lot of depth of complexity. It does gain a nice subtle astringent note that help tot add both some textural interest as well as to offer a contrast to the core of simple, sweet melon and tangerine fruit. The finish is quite short. Serviceable. 82pts

Bright tropical fruit aromas lead to a crisp, fresh palate with mouth-filling flavors of pear, apple, honey and pineapple. A gentle kiss of oak adds a creamy butterscotch nuance and wonderful depth. A superb value, this versatile wine is a fantastic match for a wide range of dishes, from mac and cheese to spicy ethnic food.
