Your 90%-rated, hand-harvested South African Chardonnay is back!

    • Layer-upon-layer of fresh citrus fruit, with a smooth blast of buttery oak streaking through – this wine is the perfect balance of richness and vibrant fruit!
    • The simple truth every Chardonnay fan needs to know is that South Africa can make this stunning white for a song. Land, labor and production costs are just much lower in South Africa – even with a hand-harvested Reserve wine like this one.
    • And thanks to Angel funding, Stephen can pass those savings on to you. So now you can have a classy Reserve Chardonnay that's such a bargain, you won't feel guilty pairing it with some deliciously down-to-earth fried chicken.

Aging advice
Enjoy now! Can also age up through 2021.

Serving advice
Chill, open, serve and enjoy! Cheers!

Local food match
Will pair well with seafood - scallops, salmon... and also white meats like pork and chicken.
