Cape Mentelle Chardonnay 2018
Wow. This wine oozes sophistication almost effortlessly and has immediate appeal. Chardonnay lovers rejoice – this is the wine you have been waiting for! This fragrant and opulent wine reveals ripe stonefruit, toasted nuts, buttered popcorn and white florals. The nose is powerful and bold, while the palate remains fresh.
A textural wonderland of exceptional fruit, high quality oak and creamy complexity from partial malolactic fermentation show the pedigree in this wine. An outstanding expression from the highly anticipated 2018 vintage that will be sure to impress now and in years to come. The wine could easily handle an abundance of flavor from Thai food to tacos…but I would give my left arm to drink this with a freshly caught, barbequed crayfish smeared in garlic butter.
