What an amazing bargain. Crisp clean with loads of flavor and mouth feel. At this price I would expect a very ordinary wine with bland flavor, but instead this wine delivers. Terribly underpriced. Should sell for $16-$20. Amazing. Unlike California over-oaked and buttery below the belt un-finessed powerhouses this Char is a subtle delight much more in the French style. Wonderful. Have with chicken, cheese, fish, or pork.

Elegant and approachable, this Chardonnay has appealing lemon and lime flavors, with hints of vanilla. Delicate peach nuances linger on the crisp, dry finish.

Throughout this wine is an herbiness typical to South African wines. In this case, the herbal notes are offset by toast, cream, peach and lemon. This has very good body, finishing with intense fruit.

This lively Chardonnay starts with lemon, lime and pear on the nose, followed by a terrific combination of crisp citrus fruit and oaky, white fruit roundness. Elegant but fun, it's a perfect food wine. Think spicy ethnic cuisine, grilled seafood, salads. Imported by Cape Classics.

Soft nuances of baby powder and orange blossom mix with the nectarine and barely ripe honeydew flavors. The palate is lively and brisk, and the vibrant acidity lends itself perfectly to the mouthwatering close. Drink now.

Pale yellow. Citrus peel on the nose. Sweet and juicy, with ripe acidity framing the citrus and nectarine flavors. Boasts good intensity and varietal character. Finishes with hints of pineapple and crystallized lemon peel.

On the light side, with pear and flint notes, and a touch of lime on the crisp finish. Refreshing. Nice value.

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright lime green hue. Hints of peach, marmalade and orange blossom on the nose. Green apple fruit flavours on a full creamy palate. Only very lightly oaked for everyday drinking. All Chardonnay grapes are grown on limestone for crisp citrus and mineral characteristics. This wine is perfect with grilled seafood, or lightly spiced Thai chicken.
