Short Street Chardonnay
Riebeek Cellars
South Africa - Western Cape - Coastal Region - Swartland

Situated at the very heart of South Africa's Swartland wine region, Short Street is the shortest street in the Riebeek Valley. A melting pot of creative energy, gourmet fare, farm fresh produce and the vibrant, uncomplicated lifestyle of the people, Short Street captures the essence of the Swartland, where passion, creativity and simplicity are distilled into a captivating experience.

Made in a rich, full-bodied, wooded style, this has an intense aroma of ripe apples, lime and pears with hints of tropical fruit, beautifully enhanced by subtle tones of well-integrated oak.
Although upfront and bold, the secret of this wine is in its exceptional balance.

Well-balanced, the medium-weight mouthfeel offers ripe citrus, peach and melon flavors that are complemented by a soft accent of dried apple skin. Medium acidity keeps the palate fresh and the finish clean, leaving you ready for more. - Lauren BUZZEO"
