Chardonnay 2018 Gift Tin

£25.00

Meerlust only make one white wine so it has to be good. Fast developing a cult following, their Chardonnay is going to be highly sought-after in a vintage like 2018, which had low yields and outstanding quality. But don’t just take our word for it, this is what the critics are saying...

The 2018 Chardonnay has classic tones of apple and pineapple with oak aromas of cinnamon and soft citrus blossoms. The palate is round, rich and elegant with fresh pear tart and lemon curd on the mid-palate and is slightly spicy, finishing with balanced, energetic, focused acidity.” - Wine Advocate

Giving oaky Burgundy a run for its money, this ten-month-barrel-aged Chardonnay is bursting with lemon posset, toasted oatmeal, marzipan, Granny Smith apples, honeysuckle, ripe greengage and salted caramel. Winemaker Chris Williams’ 13th vintage was tough but far from unlucky; this wine can be served alongside pan-fried fish topped with a knob of butter, roast turkey and all the trimmings, creamy sauces or not-so-spicy coconut-based curries.

The Myburgh family has been making wine at Meerlust Estate for eight generations stretching back to 1756 - to think, that some people call this the New World! Drive up the long, palm tree-lined driveway and you’ll discover the iconic white manor house on top of a granite outcrop, 5km from False Bay. The hot vineyards are cooled by the refreshing ocean breezes, helping the Myburghs to create wines with finesse.
