Bartinney Chardonnay 2020

Original price was: R245,00.Current price is: R225,00.

The sunshine yellow and slight green undertones of this wine already hint toward the masterful balance of this Chardonnay. This fruit-forward wine leans towards a fresh style with lime, apricot, and green pineapple notes on the nose. The oak component, presented as wood spice notes, is perfectly integrated and not over-powering and may therefor appeal to a wide range of wine drinkers. Almond notes provide an interesting twist. On the palate, the subtle sweetness and fresh acidity marries well to result in a very elegant wine. As on the nose, the oak component is well integrated and provides vanilla and coconut notes to offset the fresh and vibrant fruit and almond notes. The texture is velvety and carries through to a long finish.

About the Wine Estate

Creating excellence in wine has not been a singular pursuit. Our belief is that every aspect must work in harmony: agriculture with nature, people with animals, sustainability with excellence. The old vines are planted to a height of 550m above sea level and with slopes as steep as 45 degrees, creating wines that have exceptional expression and character. Small pockets of low yielding, hand-tended Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay vineyards offer up perfect fruit on the cooler elevated slopes. On the slightly lower foothills of the Botmaskop mountains the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are tended to. The perfect conditions to grow grapes with a balance of rich and mineral characters.
