    I was outright blown away by the quality of this Chardonnay from one of the cooler climate sites in the Cape South Coast. The wineries lies very close to the ocean, ushering in the sea breezes, which keeps the vines cool and prevents flat qualities and acid loss. This wine portrays every single quality I look for in a good Chardonnay: Rich, but not overly ripe fruit, a touch of oak to provide structure and depth, enough natural acid to brighten the fruit characters, and a sense of minerality that comes from the soils and proximity to the sea. I consider this to be one of the best Chardonnays in the store and I cannot emphasize enough how incredibly delicious I thought it was. Really one of my top picks that will please almost anyone.
    Top Value!
