This pulls no punches, with lots of grilled hazelnut, matchstick and piecrust aroma followed by ripe pear, fig and melon flavors. Long, smoky finish delivers another wave of fruit. Drink now through 2005.

Chardonnay 2008 - Glen Carlou: Chardonnay 2008 - Weißwein von Glen CarlouEin zartes Gold mit grünem Schimmer leuchtet im Glas. Der vollmundige Chardonnay 2008 erfreut mit einem Bukett aus grünen Früchten und nussig-buttrigen Aromen, die an reife Äpfel, Karamell, Gewürze, feine Melone und Zitrusfrüchte erinnern. Dieser Weißwein wirkt sehr erfrischend mit seiner guten Balance zwischen Frucht und Säure, er zeigt sich körperreich mit einer gut eingebunden Eichenholznote. Beim Abgang ist geprägt von einer klaren und frischen Art, die von der Säure gestützt wird.Der 2008er Jahrgang war perfekt für den Chardonnay, er zeigt Klasse und ein gutes Reifepotential, kann aber auch schon jetzt genossen werden. Er passt wunderbar zu Garnelen in Knoblauch, Fisch mit Weißweinsauce oder zu mildem Weichschimmelkäse.Weingut: Glen CarlouLand: SüdafrikaRegion: PaarlRebsorte: 100% ChardonnayInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,1 g/lRestsüße: 3,6 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (10 Monate) Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 6-8 °CLagerfähigkeit: 4-6 Jahre ab Jahrgang Weißwein > Südafrika > Paarl - Franschhoek

The regular cuveacute;e from Glen Carlou is a weighty wine, spicy, with toffee and cream flavors and some attractive green fruit to give it a fresh aftertaste. While this is not serious as the Reserve Chardonnay, it makes a delicious apeacute;ritif wine, that will pair well with light fish dishes.

Winemaker's notes:Color: Light gold with green hue.Aroma: Green fruit, with a nutty butterscotch note. Ripe apple, hints of toffee and spice, subtle melon and citrus.Flavor: The flavors are refreshing, with a great balance of fruit and acidity. Full-bodied with juicy apple flavors and well-integrated oak.A wonderful vintage for Chardonnay. 2008 shows signs of true class and longevity.

Aromas of lime, citrus, yeasty, spicy, tropical fruit and melon. Made in the classic Glen Carlou style, this wine will mature well and will show rich, yeasty, full citrus and biscuity flavors as it ages. A vintage typified by a floral botrytis character that will develop into a honey bush fragrance. The finish is long lasting with juicy fruit flavors on the palate, and a full mouthfeel, finishing crisp and clean.

Winemaker's Notes:

Glen Carlou’s worldwide reputation for quality wines has been built on the mission of delivering handcrafted wines reflecting our distinctive terroir. Over the past decades, our wines have harvested a rich bounty of accolades and today six sought-after wines are available in a classic range. 2008 was a warmer vintage than usual, giving a fuller style to the Chardonnay. This style will show very good longevity in the bottle. It is fresh lime green in colour, with hints of yellow. There are aromas of green fruit with nutty butterscotch notes, ripe apples and hints of toffee and spice. The flavours are refreshing, with a great balance of fruit and acidity. Full bodied with juicy apple flavours, and well integrated oak for a mouth-watering finish. Complements grilled or smoked fish, poultry or pasta. Great with chicken cacciatore.
