La Motte Chardonnay, Franschhoek, South Africa 2014

A cracking Cape Chardonnay, with its fruit sourced entirely from a 200m high single vineyard on the La Motte estate in Franschoek. This is taut, refreshing, delicate and complex with citrus, melon, pear and cashew nut flavours on the palate. There’s also a spicy, gentle leesy character to add extra interest and depth. The oak, which has been beautifully handled, is subtle and is exquisitely complementary to this elegant, appetising white. Outstanding.
