South African Chardonnay Mixed Case
South African Chardonnay Mixed Case
Think: lemon curd, lime zest, apricot, white pineapple, toasted almond, savoury spice, creamy minerality, juicy acidity, endless finish Premier Cru white burgundy? Premium South African chardonnay. If not already, you'll be astonished by just how delicious it can be. So here, three gorgeously pure, cool-climate expressions from Stellenbosch, Hemel-en-Aarde and Western Cape to comprise Mr.Wheelers South African chardonnay mixed case. Three thrilling whites for intense drinking pleasure now or further ageing instead, and three delicious reminders of the exemplary craftsmanship and value this winemaking powerhouse continues to offer.
2021 Estate Reserve Chardonnay, Glenelly Estate, Stellenbosch
Established by May de Lencquesaing (formerly of Château Pichon Longville Comtesse de Lalande fame) and on terroir nestled in an amphitheatre setting in the foothills of Simonsberg Mountain where east-facing vines, planted on ancient, decomposed granite (and some of the oldest soils in the world) benefit from a unique diversity of microclimates.
"Opening with aromas of lime candy, pear drop and sweet citrus, the 2020 Estate Reserve Chardonnay offers vibrant and lively tones of pineapple and pomelo on the nose. Medium-bodied, the palate remains fresh and zippy before ending with succulent acidity that lingers on to the finish. Its a delightful, food-friendly wine."

2018 Chardonnay, Sumaridge Estate, Upper Hemel-en-Aarde
Lying gracefully between two imposing mountain ranges in the Western Capes Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley - aptly named "Heaven and Earth" - with commanding views stretching to Walker Bay on the Atlantic Ocean.
"Small portion fermented in stainless steel, majority in various size/age barrels 11 months, which 2017 proudly displays as barley sugar, oatmeal, adding richness to the citrus. Dry & zinging fresh, intense lemon & lime to keep it vibrant for years."

2020 Crocodile's Lair Chardonnay, Bouchard Finlayson, Elandskloof Valley
Established in South Africas Hemel-en-Aarde valley in 1989 and a ground-breaking partnership between acclaimed Burgundian winemaker Paul Bouchard and trailblazing local winemaker Peter Finlayson that specialises in chardonnay and pinot noir.
"The 2020 Bouchard Finlayson Crocodiles Lair Chardonnay from the sweet spot that is the Elandskloof Valley, tucked away in the Overberg Mountains of South Africa, is sleek and elegant. Thanks to the cool temperatures at 700m, fruit here ripens a month later than other Cape Chardonnays and the result is smooth, supple and restrained. Theres a touch of lemon curd plus apricot and a hint of honeyed toast on the long, satisfying finish."
