Rhebokskloof Sandstone Grove Reserve Chardonnay 2013

From its pale gold colour to the peach, lemon-peel and toasty character, this wine is designed to please. Matured in French Oak barrels, yet harmonisingly integrated, it is full bodied, with enough complexity and lingering freshness to accompany different food dishes.A fantastic vintage for this variety!
