Rhebokskloof Chardonnay 2021
This wine is a beautiful medley of flavours with red grapefruit and juicy ripe naartjie dominant at first, developing into an appealing lemon meringue texture and flavour complemented by hints of vanilla pod. The wine has a long finish with prominent orange blossoms and potpourri notes.

Aromas of orange blossom and pineapple are prominent on the nose. On entry, ripe yellow lemon flavours develop into a cocktail of ripe pineapple and red grapefruit. The midpalate is dominated by a lovely creamy lemon meringue-like texture and flavour with highlights of vanilla pod. The sweet citrus aromas linger long after the last sip.
This well-balanced wine will pair beautifully with a butter chicken or pork belly dish.
