Fleur du Cap Chardonnay 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chardonnay displays a beautiful toast aroma on the nose with hints of apricot melon and citrus fruit. It is dry with a well balanced weight and fullness that demands attention. A zesty palate packed with apricot and citrus fruit flavour is supported by lovely nut butterscotch and vanilla oak nuances. The flavour gains intensity in the mouth with a fascinating long finish. It will mature well over the next 2 to 4 years. An ideal accompaniment to sushi oysters and full-flavoured fish such as tuna and salmon. Excellent with pasta or a white meat dish served with a rich creamy sauce.

86 PTS WINE SPECTATOR. Fleur du Cap Chardonnay is fresh and direct, with apple, pear and melon notes backed by modest toast on the finish; drink now.

On the nose this Chardonnay displays citrus fruit and melon with a hint of vanilla oak in the background. On the palate it is dry but rounded and packed with apricot and citrus fruit supported by lovely nut and vanilla oak . It will mature well over the next 2 to 4 years.
