Sa chardonnay

2006 Warwick estate Chardonnay
Delicious chardonnay! Drank a lot of chardonnay in Hawkes bay and this bottle reminds me of the new world style of well produced chardonnay.
The warmth of Stellenbosch produces lovely ripe fruit and new oak barrels are used by the winemakers.

Fresh sherbetty lemon nose with hints of pineapple. On the palate this is refreshing with nicely balanced fruit that leads onto a smooth bodied creamy texture and long buttery nut finish. This is excellent, and would I think get better in the cellar although its perfect now!
87/100
