Gold in color. Aromas of apple, citrus, and nectarine, along with an assertive woody note from the oak program. Flavors are appley, with vanillin oak influences. Finish is oaky, too. Not the worst chardonnay I've had in the price point, and if you like your chards oaky this will please you given the price.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chardonnay grapes were carefully hand harvested and then gently de‐stemmed.   They were crushed, pressed and allowed to settle overnight.   Each lot was fermented in upright stainless steel tanks to retain the bright fruit flavors of the grapes and to achieve a clean, balanced structure.  The juice was allowed to ferment slowly at 14°C.  None of the lots underwent malolactic fermentation.   Andries then tasted the finished lots and selected the best blend to arrive at the complexity he desired in the finished wine.  

Tasting Notes:

The 2007 Sebeka South African Chardonnay has a crisp style, offering a bouquet of fresh apples, pears, spicy cloves and caramelized sugar.  The palate confirms the bouquet, and is accented with hints of oak and vanilla on the finish.   This wine is at its best if enjoyed within one year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to two years.
