Groot Constantia, Chardonnay, Constantia, South Africa 2013
A cracking Chardonnay from the Cape’s oldest wine farm. Grown on sandstone and decomposed granite this has a hint of aromatic perfume alongside the wine’s structure. The result is a richly textured wine with minerals, honeysuckle, white peach, cream and butter. Winemaker Boela Gerber delayed picking some plots to increase the intensity. And it shows in this complex, compelling effort.
