Mulderbosch Chardonnay 2011

Pale straw in appearance with green hues. The complex nose exudes ripe apricots, freshly shelled almonds, subtle oakspice and delicate frangpani leading onto a richly layered palate bursting with flavour. The creamy, velvety mouth feel is offset by racy mineral freshness which persists long into the finish.

Pairs well with grilled pork, chicken or prawns. Try also with spicy foods like jalapeno poppers!

The remainder of the wine was fermented with its own indigenous yeast in French oak barrels, 25% in new barrels and 30% in second fill barrels. The wine underwent no malolactic fermentation and was left on the gross lees for eight months. It was then lightly fined and filtered before being bottled.
