Meerlust Chardonnay 2018
|Region||South Africa, Stellenbosch|
Appearance: Very bright, polished platinum with green, vivacious hue. Aroma: Complex, appealing nose with pear, citrus and floral notes developing into lemon cream, oatmeal and marzipan richness. Palate: The wine is medium bodied and linear but retains generous focused citrus fruit flavors with sleek, balanced and crisp acidity. The wine remains vivacious and fresh on the finish with clean citrus fruit and stony minerality. The wine has a long, very pleasant lingering finish. Decanting and exposure to air opens the aroma and palate of the wine. Food Suggestions: Grilled fish, white and red meat. Ideally served at 12°-14°C.
