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

This unoaked Chardonnay is an accessible wine with the body of the Chardonnay grape but without the oak and buttery flavors often associated with this cultivar. The color is a brilliant green-gold and the style is dry yet fruity. The nose has pronounced tropical flavors following through onto a palate with a well-rounded, lingering citrus finish.

Coastal Region - Swartland
Wine Type
100% Chardonnay
Free run juice was used. After settling and acid adjustment, juice was inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation temperature remained between 13-14 degrees Celsius. Wine was left on lees for a few months prior to bottling to enhance the flavour.

It is lovely with most entrees, from crisp salads to creamy soups and chicken, whether served grilled or in a creamy sauce.
