Product Overview

The 2018 Meerlust Chardonnay begins with a complex, appealing nose of pear, citrus, and floral notes developing into lemon cream, oatmeal, and marzipan richness. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied and linear but retains generous focused citrus fruit flavours with sleek, balanced and crisp acidity. The wine remains vivacious and fresh on the finish with clean citrus fruit and stony minerality. The wine has a long, very pleasant lingering finish.

89 Points - Wine Spectator
"Marked by seductive oak aromas and flavors, this brings out peach and quince details midpalate, followed by hints of fleur de sel and clove. Vibrant and balanced, revealing accents of pine on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 3,750 cases made, 163 cases imported." -AZ, 12/15/19

89 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Chardonnay has classic tones of apple and pineapple with oak aromas of cinnamon and soft citrus blossoms. The palate is round, rich and elegant with fresh pear tart and lemon curd on the mid-palate and is slightly spicy, finishing with balanced, energetic, focused acidity." -AM, 10/31/19
