2016 Moederkerk Chardonnay, The Stellenbosch Reserve
Named after the Moederkerk (Mother Church) in Stellenbosch, a towering example of neo-Gothic architecture completed in 1863 by architect, Carl Otto Hager. Deep straw with a light green hue. Notes of peach, candyfloss and figs develop to reveal richer aromas of cr�me caramel and macadamia nuts due to the light oak influence. Initial notes of citrus peel keep the aromas fresh and light which in turn helps to add complexity. Well-balanced with a round body and clean fruit flavours, this wine is upfront with citrus, nectarines and ripe melons. The opulent body is firmly structured with a subtle yet lengthy finish.
