This is another South African Chardonnay that gives me a sense of Sonoma Chardonnay without being punished by oak. Green apple, lemon, lime, peach, some butter, saline, beautiful soft minerality and jasmine white flowers. Great acidity and well polished finished.

Photos of; a pano view of the property from the top of their hillside vines, another metal statue just outside their Cellar Door, Sofia under the white tree that reminds of the movie “The Return of the King” and part of their large tasting room.
