Indaba Chardonnay displays bright tropical fruit aromas that lead to a crisp, fresh palate with mouth-filling flavours of apple, pear, honey and pineapple.
"This full-bodied, rich Chardonnay, offers a powerful citrus, giving it great elegance, with flintstone on the nose, mineral undertones and good balance, giving the wine a wonderful lingering finish."
Clay amphorae were used in addition to French oak barrels for this single-block wine. Enjoy subtle oak characters with notes of citrus, followed by subtle notes of honey and butterscotch.
Stylish and Burgundian with bright citrus, white stone fruit, oyster shell minerality and a hint of brioche – a wine layered and complex with a lingering finish.
This offering is produced from shy-bearing vineyards that are situated on Babylon Farm in the Ward of Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, Walker Bay. The wine, a clear and true reflection of the potential of the unique soils and maritime site situated in the hills above Hermanus, is released a year after vintage as a prime example of maritime influenced Chardonnay.
Elegant and complex. Limey fruit with perfect oak balance and a mineral finish on the palate.
With strong influence of Alex Dale’s upbringing in Burgundy, the making of this Chardonnay is also adapted to our particular conditions in this ocean-facing part of the Cape – our mineral geology and temperate maritime climate both lending much to the equation. Restraining acidity, citrus flavours and integrated oaking, the introverted side of its character; ripeness and great persistence on the palate the more expansive side. Genuinely mineral, with a crisp lime- citrus edge and an elegant yet intense durability. A Chardonnay striving to be individual, focused on backbone and not butter.
