The 2012 Fleur Du Cap Chardonnay was sourced from vineyards in the Stellenbosch, Somerset West,
Malmesbury, Elgin and Robertson areas and was then fermented and aged in barrels or staves from French and American Oaks. The attractive aromas are of lees, lemon, zest and green apple on the nose and apple together with subtle coconut and vanilla on the palate. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with crisp acidity and a creamy finish of medium length. This refreshing wine is a food friendly or can be enjoyed by itself; drink now to 2018 (screw cap enclosure). My impression: NICE, 87-88 pts.
Tasted in Apr/14.

Screw cap. Medium+ aromas that show notes of apple, butter, orchard fruits and hints of buttered popcorn. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with plenty of spice notes at the forefront, followed by lime, apple, and butter flavours. Fairly round on the palate, with good acids and a medium-length finish. Serve nicely chilled. Paired nicely with baked salmon. Tasted May/2014.
