Tasting Notes

Good godfathers this is a lovely chardonnay. Reminds me more of Burgundy than South Africa. Restrained in style with fine yet concentrated flavours of lemon pie, citrus and creamy white flower, and the gentlest savoury core of toasty blanched nut and flint, all delivered with the subtlety of ministering angels descended to earth with a sacred mission to show how delightful Walker Bay chardonnay can be.

More Info

A lovely sense of freshness and integrated, a slightly saline minerality and restrained yet luminous fruit - sunripe melon and peach, lemon and lime. And creamy white butter. Gorgeous fine texture, a hint of mealy yestiness... There's so much more to come from this but right now it's so dew-fresh and bright. 

FROM THE PRESS

“This is another accomplished Chardonnay from Tesselaarsdal that boasts a breath and depth of textural opulence making the maiden 2019 vintage look more like a chiselled Premier Cru Chablis in comparison. The 2020 nose boasts classic notes of spicy yellow citrus, green honeydew melon, white peach and a bold limestone mineral vein. The wine coats your mouth with a fine glycerol weight and delicious mouth-watering green apple pastille notes enlivened with pronounced tangy acids. Seamless and harmonious, Berene Sauls has created another attractive expression of premium Chardonnay that is ready to drink on release.”
