In the December issue of the internationally recognised Decanter magazine, the Elgin Ridge 282 Chardonnay 2017 was rated as one of the “30 Best Cape Wines Under £20”, scoring an impressive 94 points. The wine was reviewed by renowned UK Master of Wine Greg Sherwood.
One of the few certified organic wines in South Africa, this Chardonnay, a beautiful light straw colour, starts off with fresh and linear lime tension, opening up to sweet satsuma and candied citrus. The pithy texture keeps the sweet citrus fruits tightly knit at first, and as more oxygen enters the wine in your glass, the pithy texture opens up to a velvet-like mouthfeel. This leaves you with a wine that will continue to change in aroma expression as time passes.
A Chardonnay best enjoyed throughout the year and at any occasion. Enjoy on its own or with lightly cooked shellfish dishes. Also the perfect partner to poultry, vegetarian and pasta dishes. Available directly from the Tasting Room at R250 per bottle as well as specialist wine stores throughout the country.
