    Region: South Africa

    Varietal: Chardonnay

    Style: Fruity & Smooth

    Item no. 95970

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Citrus and tropical fruit aromas lead to a crisp, fresh palate with mouth-filling flavors of apple, pear, honey, and pineapple. A gentle kiss of oak adds a creamy butterscotch nuance and wonderful depth. A superb value, this versatile white is a fantastic match for a wide range of dishes, from mac & cheese to grilled shrimp.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Once again this year, it would be hard to improve for the price on Indaba's 2008 Chardonnay, whose scents of apple, nutmeg, and musk melon lead into a palate both fresh-fruited and attractively tinged with spice and caramel, its component of barriques adding attractive but not superficial seasoning as well as truly framing the fruit. And there is truly a finish here for one's $10: faintly lactic, nutty, and caramel-tinged yet refreshing. I can only repeat what I wrote last year, namely that if one could replace the 98% of cheap Chardonnay being poured around the world that ranges from mediocre to miserable with glasses of this, no consumer would (nor should) ever again be willing to settle for less.
