This unwooded Chardonnay has the body of the Chardonnay grape but without the oak and buttery flavors often associated with this cultivar.

Established in 1941, which makes it relatively old compared to all the new wineries that have sprung up in this area, is situated in Riebeek Kasteel at the foot of Bothma's Kloof Pass. The Riebeek Valley is a mecca of wonderful wines, exceptional food and exquisite art where tourists and locals alike are forever tempted into spending more time than allowed. The serene valley falls in the bigger Swartland region which is called the 'bread basket' of South Africa for its grain production, while it is further internationally acclaimed for its high quality olive products. With various hotels and fine-dining restaurants as well as true country hospitality, the Riebeek Valley has become a very popular tourist destination. The ultimate charm of Riebeek is however in its people and their commitment and passion for wine. This medium-sized winery situated in Riebeek Kasteel at the foot of Bothma's Kloof Pass, sources its grapes from the fertile Riebeek Valley and the slopes of the mountain where the climate is very similar to the Mediterranean.

TASTING NOTES:  This unwooded style of Chardonnay offers an accessible wine with the body of the Chardonnay grape but without the oak and buttery flavors often associated with this cultivar. Displaying a brilliant green-gold color, the style is dry but fruity. The nose offers exceptional tropical aromas that follow through in the palate with a well-rounded finish of lingering citrus fruits.

FOOD PAIRING: Salad, chicken, fish, aperitif.

"A fresh, unadorned style, with lime, pippin apple and a twinge of slate. Light-bodied." - Wine Spectator - 85 pts
