Kloovenburg Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2000

Sold Out
This wine has a bouquet of spring blossoms and a robust yet refined, fruity flavour, which lingers on the palate. At a recent wine tasting, a friend declared this “a white wine for the red palate”. We think he was acknowleding its mouthfilling flavor, generous mouthfeel and great balance – taste for yourself and decide.
