The Winery of Good Hope Unoaked Chardonnay 2019

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  15985

Nicely composed, smoky-flinty, fruity and fleshy chardonnay here from South Africa, another example of the fine value this country offers.The palate is ripe and round, delivering plenty of white and yellow-fleshed orchard fruit, pear and Golden Delicious apple, yellow plum and more. Acids are relatively soft, giving it a broad and creamy texture, while alcohol warms up the back end (13.5% declared). All in all, a satisfying mouthful for the money. Score - 89.
