2017 Kershaw Chardonnay GPS Series Lower Duivenhoks River - 90 PTS - WA

wa"While it's not Elgin fruit, the nose of the 2017 GPS Lower Duivenhoks River Chardonnay begins focused with yellow apples and zippy acid-driven lemon skin. The palate is clean and oaked with a spicy line through the mid-palate that lingers onto the finish. It's an elegant wine with a well-balanced finish that is food friendly. Kershaw is making this wine from Chardonnay clone 95 and was able to fill 2,700 bottles. - Anthony Mueller"

2017 Kershaw Chardonnay GPS Series Lower Duivenhoks River - 93 PTS - IWR

i winereview logo"Delicate, precise nose with hints of lemon and flint. A finely sculpted wine that evokes oyster shells, savory sage. Mandarin pith and lemon zest notes persist on the extended finish. Made entirely from Dijon clone CY95. Part of the GPS Series, the vineyard lies east of Agulhas and 5 km from the sea on an escarpment of clay over limestone. Sees about 40% new 228L oak."

2017 Kershaw Chardonnay GPS Series Lower Duivenhoks River - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2017 GPS Chardonnay has a killer bouquet, just like the 2016, the mineral-rich aromatics soaring from the glass with fantastic delineation that actually reminds me of Domaine Leflaive. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, and a little more saline than the previous vintage, although maybe not quite as persistent. Still, this is an outstanding Chardonnay from Kershaw and it will give 12 to 15 years of drinking pleasure. - Neal Martin"

2019 Kershaw Chardonnay GPS Series Lower Duivenhoks River - 93 PTS - JS

james suckling hq logo plainInviting aromas of white peaches, lemon curd, flint and rosemary. Medium-bodied with supple texture. Saline mineral character adds complexity and succulence to the warm citrus and stone fruit notes. Layered and evolves as it goes on. Drink or hold."

2019 Kershaw Chardonnay GPS Series Lower Duivenhoks River - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2019 Chardonnay GPS Series Lower Duivenhoks River has a detailed, focused bouquet of orchard fruit, apple blossom and touches of struck flint. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and touches of quince and tangerine peel, revealing very good weight toward the finish. Excellent. - Neal Martin"
