Stellenrust Chardonnay 2012

Product code: 13STE5B2012

The nose shows ripe citrus fruits with some toasted almond. The palate is more concentrated with stronger nut flavours, peach notes, but also a lingering topicality. Well judged oaking preserves a butterscotch pallet and promote a zesty acidity for graceful bottle ageing.

Production information

Producer: Stellenrust

Stellenrust bottled its first wine on the farm in 1928. Today the winery is run by the brothers Tertius (winemaker) and Kobus (viticulturist), and is one of the largest family-run Fairtrade estates in Stellenbosch, with 500 hectares of land under vine.  The brothers are committed to following their father’s dream: to give back to the workers, who themselves had given so much to the farm.
