West Cape Howe 'Cape to Cape' Chardonnay
West Cape Howe
"Our Cape-to-Cape wines are approachable, fruit driven wines made for enjoying now and over the short term. Very little oak used; most was fermented in stainless tanks to produce a wine with maximum fruit flavour while still having the good palate weight and richness typical of the variety. Bottling early ensures all its delicious fresh fruit flavours are retained." - Gavin Berry, Winemaker
Bright, light gold with a lemon tinge in colour. Fresh and lifted with attractive, tropical fruit salad characters, particularly the peachy, rockmelon aromas that are so typical of this variety. This is a delicious, well flavoured Chardonnay for drinking now and over the next year or so. It has loads of mouth filling, fresh peachy fruit flavours and good palate weight. The wine’s initial upfront softness is beautifully balanced by its fresh, zingy acidity; this acidity then contributing to its good palate length.
