This international sensation, the Chardonnay white wine, is available from CyberCellar online at spectacular cellar door prices. Originating in Burgundy, France, this grape was illegally brought into South Africa in the latter part of the 20th century.
Your glass will sparkle with the full straw coloured white wine that ranges from subtle yellow, to lemon-yellow, and a crisp golden yellow. A complex nose that varies whether the Chardonnay wine is wooded, essences of straw and forest pine entice the nose.
Fruity sensations of melon, peach, and apricot are present in an unwooded Chardonnay while herbaceous notes lift the citrus fruit scents of lemon. Unwooded Chardonnays have a bright, fresh piquancy with a citrus lemon, while their wooded counterparts feature elements of the barrel such as vanilla and butterscotch. The taste of a Chardonnay mirrors flavours of the nose and greatly depends on whether it has been wooded.
