Graham Beck Lonehill Chardonnay 2015

Brilliant, green-edged straw yellow in hue, this wine has a complex bouquet of lime, grapefruit and some peach, lifted with delicate nuances of roasted almonds, flint and nougat. On the palate the Lonehill has a most refined and sophisticated structure with concentrated flavours of citrus and white stone fruits which merge delightfully with nutty barrel ferment elements derived from its 14 months in oak.

A crisp natural acidity ensures excellent longevity. Delicious when enjoyed with grilled seafood, poultry and pork dishes.

Renowned for its unique dry, cool climate and limestone rich soils the Robertson region has earned an enviable reputation for producing award-winning, world class Chardonnay. Lonehill Chardonnay, the single vineyard from our Robertson Estate, is no exception.

in the vineyard : Area of origin: Robertson, Western Cape. 

in the cellar : Crafted with maximum respect for purity of expression and the distinctive terroir conditions of this exceptional milieu, this chiseled and focused Chardonnay is New World in origin yet Old World in stylistic inclination. Achieving both subtlety and intensity, this highly collectable wine is produced in extremely small quantities from specially selected parcels of fruit. The meticulous use of large format French oak expertly underscores the intriguing complexity of this outstanding Chardonnay. The result is a compelling tribute to this noble cultivar, displaying understated power and great elegance.
