Wine Review: This very tropical South African Chardonnay has a nice lemon yellow color. It opens with a slate, banana, tropical fruit and green apple bouquet. It has a medium body and is smooth and balanced. It displays flavors of peach, pineapple, light grapefruit and a touch of buttery oak. It has a round lingering finish with light citrus. I found it to be quite food friendly and I would pair it with pan-seared scallops. - Mark
Winemaker Notes: Bright tropical fruit aromas lead to a crisp, fresh palate with mouth-filling flavors of apple, pear, honey, and pineapple. A whisper of oak adds a creamy butterscotch nuance and wonderful depth. A superb value, this versatile white is a seamless pairing for an array of flavors.
