    INGE CHARDONNAY 2015

    The extraordinary piece of earth close to Africa’s tip, on which our Chardonnay vines grow, contributes to this unique wine. This wine has a mouth-watering citrus fruit taste with hints of oak and richness that fills the palate.

    Appropriately named after Jan-Hendrik, Jr. and wife Lindi’s daughter, this wine will age with strength and elegance.

    Tasting Notes:

    This Chardonnay exudes ripe tropical fruit notes, dried peaches and charming hints  of butterscotch and toffee. The wine is soft in the mouth, shows citrus on the mid palate and a lingering finish of  lemon drops with a fine trace of oak. 

    Food pairing

    Our cooler climate Chardonnay pairs well with a creamy mushroom chicken dish and rich soups.

    TEMPRANILLO 2015
