Description

Tasting Notes

“A complex nose of citrus, white peach, spice and buttered toast aromatics are evident on the nose of this 100% Single Vineyard Chardonnay. The mid-palate evolves with tantalising lime and butterscotch notes framed by a fresh citrus character. These follow through to an extended and complex aftertaste of apricot marmalade and a delicate yet creamy almond finish. Throughout the mouthfeel, the Quartz soil’s mineral identity is revealed”. Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Winemaker’s Note

“This 100% Single Vineyard Chardonnay shows an enticing light gold body colour. There are tantalising and distinctive fruit notes of citrus, green apple and peach stone fruit. Butterscotch and lime notes on the mid-palate follow through to an extended aftertaste of citrus marmalade with a delicate almond finish.” – Johnnie Calitz
