2015 Benguela Cove Chardonnay
- South Africa
- Walker Bay
- Bottle size
- 750 mL
Displaying the true characteristics of a cool climate Chardonnay, this straw yellow in colour wine is finely balanced with mandarin, cashew nut, toasted bread and white peach flavours underpinned by flinty notes and precise acidity. The core of juicy red apple and nougat is complemented by a creamy textured palate, nuanced by biscuity oak flavours.
- Winemaking Notes
The Chardonnay vineyards are vertically trellised on south eastern facing slopes and oriented in a northerly direction. The predominant soil type is Estcourt which supports water tables in winter while slowly draining in spring. This soil also has good nutrient reserves and water-retention properties.
- Food Pairing
The Chardonnay 2015 pairs well with pasta as creamy sauces will allow the complexity of this wine to shine through. White meats such as pork and poultry or mild Indian coconut-based curries are also perfect accompa-niments to this versatile wine. Another superb pairing to try is salmon or smoked haddock.
