Chamonix, Chardonnay Reserve, Franschhoek, 2016

In Stock Now!

A 2017 Platter Wine Guide 5 star winner, again confirming this as one of the Cape’s top Chardonnays. From vines at 400-500m up, the fruit is all barrel-fermented and then 20% goes into Nomblot concrete eggs. Platter’s note: "Natural ferment & judicious maturation (majority in 70% new oak, 20% concrete ‘egg’) allows alluring fruit purity to hold sway in 15 (*****). Balanced & restrained…with oatmeal & citrus interplay, taut mineral core".

This seems more restrained than past vintages - more sophisticated? Aromas of high quality barrels and stone fruit. Creamy volume and richness. So complete. Now-2023

"Alluring lemon butter, green apple, buttered toast and subtle crème brûlée characters meld together elegantly on the palate. It is fresh and linear with classy acidity in a tightly wound, unyielding style. 92/100", Decanter magazine, April 2017
