Stellenbosch Vineyards Unwooded Chardonnay 2018

The Stellenbosch Vineyards Unwooded Chardonnay is a feast for the senses, displaying expertly balanced complexity and purity of fruit.

Tropical fruit flavours present themselves delicately throughout the palate, supported by a lovely creaminess of texture imparted by lees contact.
