Platters Review: 4*
Excluding press fractions from this cuvée has increased its focus and sophistication. Detailed layers of fig, grapefruit, passionfruit and a touch of lemon curd, delivered by a juicy, unassertive acidity and complimented by a noteworthy Hemel-en-Aarde salinity. Serve chilled and enjoy as the wine unfolds in your glass.
Springbok and chakalaka curry bread, Waldorf salad, grilled fresh Yellowtail or whenever refreshment of the palate is needed.
These grapes originate from two locations – the Bouchard Estate and a unique vineyard site, located amongst the tall mountains behind the village of Villiersdorp in the Elandskloof valley, Overberg. The soils are clay-based and non-irrigated, capturing a very special terroir. Achieving the character associated with the best Chardonnay wines, usually also happens through maturing in French Oak barrels. In this instance, the Sans Barrique Cuvee enjoys no wood, which is the key to its crisp, clean personality.
