Chamonix

Chamonix, Chardonnay Reserve, Franschhoek, 2018

The recently installed winemaker at Chamonix, Niel Bruwer, has pulled the wines here back into shape. This is the top Chardonnay, a strict barrel selection from the highest vineyards at 500-600m. it's barrel fermented and aged for 14 months, with 20% matured in expensive Nomblot eggs - which are supposed to be the perfect shape for the suspension of the lees of the wine. Good depth of tone. Such an inviting nose, buttery over lime and stone fruit. Well textured, with a dry and savoury core, enlivened by exotic notes of pinneapple, peach and tangerine. Very complete and expressive. Now -2024

More delicious wine from Stone Vine and Sun. Highly recommended.
