Chamonix

Franschhoek, South Africa

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most-widely planted varieties in the world.

Arguably not the most characterful grape, hence its common ageing in oak, yet at its pinnacle in Burgundy it produces some of the greatest (and certainly most expensive) white wines in the world. Look out for unoaked Chardonnay, it can make a pleasant change, and usually goes down very well with all those people who...

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

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
