Meerlust Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2017 £24.95
Very bright, polished platinum with green, vivacious hue. Complex, appealing nose with pear, citrus and floral notes developing into lemon cream, oatmeal and marzipan richness.
On the palate, the wine is medium bodied and linear but retains generous focused citrus fruit flavours with sleek, balanced and crisp acidity. The wine remains vivacious and fresh on the finish with clean citrus fruit and stony minerality.
The wine has a long, very pleasant lingering finish.
87 points Platters Wine Guide
Still showing some new oak influence in youth, as did 2016 (4.5 stars, 92 pts), 2017 also replete with other notes: oatmeal, citrus, stonefruit. Texture tends to the heavy, though, & 4 g/l sugar is not quite balanced by the lemony acid, giving a detracting sweet-sour effect.
