Leeu Passant Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2020Regular price $125.00
Vivino: 4.5 | Tim Atkin: 96 points | Platter's: 5 stars
This Chardonnay has captured the Stellenbosch sun, and yet reflects its maritime climate with aromas of yellow grapefruit, wet-stone and a hint of salt-cured dried apricot. The vibrant palate delivers notes of key lime sorbet and just-ripe nectarine, which are followed by layers of stone-fruit and lemon curd. The touch of salinity and a subtle notes of oak, lend to a soft-textured mouthfeel, which is well-balanced by a zesty acidity, leading up to a beautifully poised and defined finish.
Best served at 10-12°C, this wine will show optimally when decanted within the first 3 years after bottling and will reward if cellared properly over 10 years.
