Creation Chardonnay 2018

Straw yellow with attractive glints of green the Creation Chardonnay 2015 rewards with glorious layers of sun-kissed pear and peach on the nose, enhanced by fresh minerality and a hint of piquant vanilla. The full-bodied palate is in perfect harmony: generously fruity and subtly spicy, with well-judged acidity contributing excellent balance and a lively, lingering aftertaste.

This food-friendly wine is especially recommended with flavourful chicken and seafood dishes.

The eagerly awaited 2015 vintage of our Chardonnay has been released and is already in high demand around Europe. It is indeed one of the most impressive vintages to dat from our little patch of heaven up in the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge where the comparatively cool conditions contribute to ideal, slow ripening.
