2018 Meerlust Chardonnay (Chardonnay)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: 2018 Meerlust Chardonnay has a bright, polished platinum with green colour.
  • Nose: Complex on the nose, with pear, citrus, and delicate floral aromas.
  • Mouth: Dry taste, with a full mineral flavour complemented with citrus fruit flavours and crisp acidity.

APPELLATION: Stellenbosch

VINEYARD: Meerlust Estate. Located in South Africa, this estate is named after the ocean, meaning literally ‘pleasure of the ocean'. Collected from four different vineyards within the estate, the different soil types contribute to the mineral flavour and the rich texture found in this Chardonnay. The grapes benefit from the ocean breeze that bathes the south-facing vineyards, and the combination of old and new grapes bring a delicious character to this vine.

GRAPES: 100% Chardonnay.

AGEING: Barrel matured for nine months before bottling.

PREPARATION: The grapes are handpicked. Fermentation takes place 40% in new tight grain Allier French oak and 60% second fill 300 litre barrels. For half of the barrels the fermentation was assisted with specially selected Chardonnay yeast, while the other half was left to ferment naturally. The following step was malolactic fermentation, and finally the maturation process in wooden barrels. The end result is an elegant liquor with an appealing flavour and a full body. 2018 Meerlust Chardonnay is the touch of elegance and sophistication that you were missing.

PAIRING: This Chardonnay pairs perfectly with grilled salmon, pork belly, roast chicken, roast pork, and some cheeses, such as cheddar and gruyere.

RIGHT SERVING TEMPERATURE: 12 - 14°C

ALCOHOL: 12.9%

Meerlust Chardonnay 2018

Attractively platinum in colour with bright green inflections. Complex and pretty on the nose with notes of quince, citrus and vibrant florals, which develop into lemon curd, oatmeal and marzipan richness. Full bodied and generous on the palate with a crisp acidity and a long, mineral finish.
