Warwick White Lady Chardonnay
As is often the case with Warwick women, The White Lady has established herself as a dominant force in South African Chardonnay. This richly textured wooded white has twice been named Platter White Wine of the year and has garnered 5-star ratings over the past six consecutive vintages.
This wine oozes undeniable elegance. Laser-like lemon-and-lime acidity cuts through the core of more rounded peach fruit and baked apples, finished off with roasted almond and vanilla pod. The wine is blended from three parcels of fruit (two of which are high in the Helderberg), all harvested at different ripeness. This enables winemaker JD Pretorius to build up enormously complex fruit elements, without relying too much on oak or batonage.
