West Cape Howe Cape to Cape Chardonnay 2018
Our Cape to Cape wines are approachable, fruit driven wines made for enjoying now and over the short term. For the 2018 vintage, this Chardonnay was sourced from within the Great Southern in a season that was cool and dry, so we have a finer, more delicate style of wine as a result. After fermenting entirely in tank, the Chardonnay was briefly matured with French oak, producing a wine with delicious fresh fruit flavours and complexed by the light oak characters. Very bright and clear with a light, pale gold colour.
This chardonnay is definitely a great wine for current drinking; it is soft and fruit with a gorgeous full palate. The very light touch of oak contributes to its good palate weight without compromising on the fruit. It is generously flavoured with those tropical fruit characters and it finishes with gentle, clean acidity.
