Land of Hope Chardonnay 2021
“Wonderful Chardonnay which expresses its origin through interesting minerality and snappy acidity.”
R128.00 per bottle (South Africa)
Two exceptional sites, being Stellenbosch and Robertson are employed to create a striking example of this noble variety.
These vineyards were carefully chosen to complement each other to produce a wine of elegance and purity of fruit as well as depth and character.
Once harvested, the juice was transferred to stainless steel tanks whilst a small part was matured in barrel to enhance the complexity and texture of the final blend.
Both the tank and barrel components matured for 9 months on the primary lees which resulted in a wine with lovely weightiness as well as plush texture.
This Chardonnay successfully combines the freshness and elegance of the Stellenbosch component and the generosity and purity of fruit of the Robertson vineyard.
