2017 Riebeek Chardonnay

Producer: Riebeek Cellars
Country/Region: South Africa - Western Cape - 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.
