Meerlust Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2018 £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.
91 points Platters Wine Guide - 4.5 Stars
Nutty, toasty notes dominate 2018 in youth (45% new barrels), but there’s plenty of sweet fruit & a serious acidity in the balance on the palate, which is rich, lemony & nicely dry (2017 (4 stars, 87 pts) had a heavier, sweeter character). More forceful than 12.9% alcohol would suggest.
