Kloovenburg Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2001

The International Wine & Spirit Competition 2002 - Silver
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 acknowledging its mouthfilling flavour, generous mouthfeel and great balance - taste for yourself and decide.
