Rust en Vrede The Stellenbosch Reserve Moederkerk Chardonnay 2019
Vinification: 50% of the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and the other 50% was fermented in French oak barrels, of which 15% was 1st fill, with the balanced being 2nd and 3rd fill. The wine was then matured separately for 6 months before being blended just prior to bottling.
Color – Fresh straw
Aroma –Aromas of fresh citrus, lime and hints of lemon zest come to the fore, with elegant pineapple notes that support the initial tropical impression
Palate– A deliciously balanced Stellenbosch Chardonnay with a great follow through of citrus and pineapple from the nose. There areundertones of guava and paw-paw which add to the creamy style of the wine. This wine is a great, complex wine with a good balance between fresh acidity and creamy roundness, and an amazingly elegant finish.
