Rustenberg Stellenbosch Chardonnay Rustenberg 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intense aromatics combine many layered citrus tones from pink grapefruit and orange to lime. This is frankly oaky but not sweet with a nice almond tone and plenty of smoky notes. On the palate this is lovely, rich, pwerful yet fresh with good acidity helping to support bright flavors of apricot, peach, and apple with a vibrant mineral streak on he backend that runs through to the moderately long finish where it’s joined by the smoky, grilled nutty tones of the nose. A really nice blend of wood influences and fruit flavors that remains fresh and in balance from start to the long finish. Pair this with a rich fish in butter sauce, lobster or veal. 92pts

Buttery but still crisp aromas, baked apples and spices. Palate has some great zesty acidity but is definitely creamy as well with pears and light lemon flavors. Great long and oaky finish.

Nice sweet honey nutty bready nose. Bright with great balance and a dry creamy finish. Tiny bit of spice rounds it out.

Packed with alluring aromas and bright flavors of pear, peach, fig and ginger, it displays enticing hints of flint and mineral, perfectly balanced with notes of toasted nuts and spice.

Leuchtendes Gelb mit leicht grünlichem Schimmer. Fein würziges Bouquet: geröstete Haselnuss, Bourbonvanille und Marzipan sowie reife Ananas, enorm duftig. Saftiger und feingliedriger Gaumen, eine reife Frische, die den reichen Körper perfekt stützt mit einem Hauch Akazienhonig.
