Winemaker's Notes

This dazzling Chardonnay from heralded winemaker Mike Dobrovic flaunts alluring aromas and rich, complex flavors of pear, green apple, citrus, and almonds. Crisp and fresh, it balances bright fruit flavors with intriguing nuances of vanilla, nuts and toast.

Critical Acclaim

"Very fresh, with bright orange blossom, white peach, melon and fig notes woven together with an elegant stitching of grilled hazelnut. The long finish has nice buried acidity. Drink now. 500 cases imported."
90 Points

"A delicate chardonnay , this gains its structure as much from a frame of mineral acidity as the light vanillin of oak. Fermented with resident yeast in French oak (half of it new), this has enough citrusy fruit to hold that oak in the background. It finishes clean, with light floral scents, a dry white to serve with any grilled fish. "

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...
