Winemaker's Notes

Citrus and tropical fruit aromas lead to a crisp, fresh palate with mouth-filling flavors of apple, pear, honey, and pineapple. A gentle kiss of oak adds a creamy butterscotch nuance and wonderful depth. A superb value, this versatile white is a fantastic match for a wide range of dishes, from mac & cheese to grilled shrimp.

Critical Acclaim

"Once again this year, it would be hard to improve for the price on Indaba's 2008 Chardonnay, whose scents of apple, nutmeg, and musk melon lead into a palate both fresh-fruited and attractively tinged with spice and caramel, its component of barriques adding attractive but not superficial seasoning as well as truly framing the fruit. And there is truly a finish here for one's $10: faintly lactic, nutty, and caramel-tinged yet refreshing. I can only repeat what I wrote last year, namely that if one could replace the 98% of cheap Chardonnay being poured around the world that ranges from mediocre to miserable with glasses of this, no consumer would (nor should) ever again be willing to settle for less."

At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
