2021 Southend Chardonnay, Newton Johnson Vineyards, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley

£21.00 inc. VAT

A beautifully poised Chardonnay with more than a hint of white Burgundy to it.

Southend is a single vineyard wine that lies in the shadow of the Babylonstoring Mountains in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and is owned and farmed by the Pringle family. It is a notably cooler slope, a stone’s throw across the river from us, with less sunshine and consequently slower ripening. The soils are rich in granite and clay and is at an altitude of 210m.

In the winery there is a cool fermentation and the wine is matured for 10 months in 228 and 500 litre barrels produced in Burgundy.

A wine with energy and intensity. The high-toned, rapier -like lime fruit is buoyed with sharp ginger, white pepper and flint . Crushed stones and saltiness sustain the refreshing appeal. Good weight of flavour in the mid palate boosted with bright acidity and grippy texture.

A seriously good wine for the money.
