Made from delicious fruit grown in the beautiful Tradouw Valley. Elegant and feminine with fynbos floral. Hints of toasted almonds, honey and vanilla. Lively and full mounth Chardonnay fruit, complimented by citrus burst on finish. Drink now to 2020.
Enjoy this wine as aperitif with friends. The fresh fruit-driven style will compliment a fresh green salad with camembert and citrus; fresh fish, prawns, crayfish/lobster, seafood risotto and asparagus. Decant before drinking.
Joubert-Tradauw Chardonnay 2016 – Tim Atkin Report
Grown on clay-based shale soils in isolated Tradouw, this is a wine to surprise people with in blind tastings. It comes from a hot continental climate, all right, but the diurnal variation is massive here. This is fresh and refined, with pear and honey flavours and tangy acidity.
Received 4.5 stars from Platter.
