Rustenberg Chardonnay Stellenbosch 2018

Product description

Always an impressive Chardonnay; one that deftly manages to straddle that ultra-fine line between power and refinement. Richly textured and lively, with citrus, apple, melon and artfully applied oak influence. This will drink into the mid-20s and has the versatility and presence for holiday dinners.

93 Points - Decanter     A perennial overperformer, offering incredible quality for the price. Rich and expressive, vibrant and fresh, yet always intelligently oaked and superbly well balanced. Seductive orange peel and honeysuckle nose, sweet lemon cordial, vanilla pod and green melon purity on the finish. Drinking Window 2019 - 2024.

89 Points - Wine Enthusiast     Bitter orange peel, Honeycomb cereal, toasted apple and melon rind form the nose of this wine, and all carry through to the medium-weight palate alongside additional notes of peach and guava. It's round and mouthfilling at first, but there's just enough acidity to keep it all in check through the enduring orange-fueled finish.
