Meerlust Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2016 £22.95
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.
92 points Platters Wine Guide
2016 still youthfully, toastily flaunting its 45% new oak mid-2017 - but should resolve in bottle. Ripe but light-feeling character (just under 13% alcohol), with creamy texture & good lemony acidity. Follows superb 2015 & lighter-fruited 2014.
