Indaba Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright 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.

“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

This offers up a nice blend of cedary spice, pineapple and orchard fruits with a hint of cheesiness. This has some weight on the palate but lacks cohesion, feeling soft, broad and very open. The fruit is a touch lean with some steely apple fruit that is clean and consistent through the modest finish which shows a hint of wood spice. 83pts

This crisp, clean Chardonnay offers aromas of apple, honey and tropical fruit, and the flavor profile is not terribly complex, but friendly. Fresh fruit is balanced by acid and the mouthfeel has an appeal creamy quality. Good for food pairing; think anything from lobster to spicy ethnic cuisine.

Indaba is a South African term used to describe tribal members calling for a community meeting to discuss issues. Appropriately named, this wine is perfect for gatherings and friendly get-togethers. The fragrance is of vibrant pear, lemon peel, pineapple and melon followed by honeyed apple with a kiss of oak. Talk about a tasty wine! It pairs beautifully with corn chowder, salmon cakes, shrimp fettucine or mussels.

A light-hearted, open-knit style, with yellow apple and melon flavors followed by a kiss of butter on the finish. Drink now.

This wine offers a balance of apple and citrus crispness with a touch of buttery oak. The nose is redolent of crisp fruits; on the palate it's refreshing and seafood-friendly. Pair with shellfish or creamy egg dishes.

It would be hard to imagine a better-balanced or more succulent ten dollar wine from the worldrsquo;s most ubiquitous white variety than their 2007 Chardonnay. Spiced apple, pineapple and pear fill the nose and mouth, with the influence of wood cosmetically subtle and truly framing the fruit as itrsquo;s supposed to. Slight hints of vanilla, caramel, and butter-cream set off but by no means detract from the sheer generosity of fruit on display in a thirst-quenching finish. If one could replace the 98% of cheap Chardonnay being poured around the world that ranged from mediocre to miserable with glasses of this, no consumer would (nor should) ever again be willing to settle for less. Bravo!
