Tim Atkin's Rating: 97 points
This elegant and complex wine has flavours of lemon meringue, apple blossom and lime leaf which are bolstered by tropical notes of lychee and pineapple. It has a rindy, flinty mouthfeel, and flavours of peach and buttered popcorn which combine towards a remarkably long finish.
The Clay Shales Chardonnay is a single-vineyard wine from a site on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge that is ideally located in a mountain shadow, at high altitude and near the ocean. The wine is named after the Bokkeveld shale and clay soils on which it is grown, which combine to provide the perfect base for a balanced, Grand Cru-rivaling wine.
