Meerlust Stellenbosch Chardonnay South Africa 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Meerlust Stellenbosch Chardonnay Vibrantly bright platinum gold appearance with pronounced green hue. The expressive nose is complex with lime and lemongrass and a creamy, yellow apple bouquet. The nose also exhibits toasted nuts, marzipan and honey notes. On the palate the wine is full bodied and generous, retaining a vivacious freshness and crisp acidity. 6009648621237

Long recognized for producing world-class wines, Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the traditional dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh, eighth generation custodian of this seventeenth-century national monument. Meerlust, with its historic manor house, classic wine cellar, family cemetery, dovecote and bird sanctuary is situated fifteen kilometers south of Stellenbosch, with the blue crescent of False Bay a mere five kilometers away. The Estate is uniquely positioned for the production of wines with exceptional complexity and character. In the summertime, ocean breezes and evening mists roll in from the coast to cool the vineyards. The grapes ripen slowly, thus achieving full, concentrated varietal flavours. The soil consists of predominantly deep, well drained Hutton and Clovelly soil types, affording the vines excellent drought resistance and an ideal substrata for producing concentrated, complex wines. One hundred and ten hectares are planted with varieties such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Read less

Vintage: 2007 04/30/2009

Helles Goldgelb, feiner Zitronenduft, zarte Röstaromen mit und etwas Karamell, schöne Fruchtigkeit mit bestechender Eleganz und Finesse, mit langem Abgang. Ein edler, noch junger Chardonnay.
