Indaba Chardonay Witte Wijn Zuid Afrika Indaba Westeren Cape de Afrikaanse Wijnkelder 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Citrus and tropical fruit aromas lead to a crisp, fresh palate with mouth-filling flavors of apple, pear, honey, and pineapple. A gentle kiss of oak adds a creamy butterscotch nuance and wonderful depth. A superb value, this versatile white is a fantastic match for a wide range of dishes, from mac & cheese to spicy ethnic food. The grapes were picked in the cool early morning hours to maintain the freshness of the fruit. They were destemmed, left in cold skin contact for 4 hours, and then gently pressed. The juice was then settled overnight before fermentation, which occurred in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels. The wine was left on its lees for several months to develop further in complexity.

“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

Smells quite fruity with a nice green apple tone over some vanilla cream. On entry this shows a bit more of the toasty, creamy oak than just the vanilla on the nose but it’s fairly well balanced and round with enough acid to keep it bright. There is a little toasty nuttiness on the backend and a green apple, and lime, tone on the modest finish. A simple, fruity, and friendly styled Chardonnay 83pts

Forward, with good pear and fig notes backed by a subtle touch of toast. Drink now.

Pale color. Slightly candied fruit syrup aroma. Nicely concentrated and sweet, with somewhat one-dimensional syrupy fruit flavors. Offers good texture but finishes a tad warm.

This honey-colored Chardonnay is an elegant mouthful of citrus and crisp green apple fruits, with hints of vanilla and peaches on the nose and palate. Delicious! A perfect match to salads, antipastos, firm cheeses, shellfish, grilled chicken and creamy pasta.
