Description

Waterford Estate Chardonnay

Waterford Estate Chardonnay has a brilliant olive green hue very characteristic of this single vineyard Chardonnay. The aromatics of this wine is driven by fresh peach pip, lime and a gentle influence from oak. The age of these vines  still prove to produce lovely restraint, tightly structured wines which are rather perfumed when  young but develop beautifully from time spent in bottle, 2 -5 years from release.

Single vineyard – A special and unique vineyard on the Waterford Estate property, planted in 1988 making it one of the oldest Chardonnay vineyards in the country. This vineyard was registered as a single vineyard in 2012, which ensures that the traceability of the wine can only go back to the original 5.8-hectare block. The soils are comprised of red clay (Hutton) as well as large granite deposits and parent material found throughout the clay profile. The clay adds structure to the wine, while the granite produces great minerality and finesse to the overall presentation.

Waterford is a 120 hectare estate situated in the stunningly beautiful Blauwklippen Valley, part of the Stellenbosch wine region. The property was identified and created by the Ord and Arnold families from a subsection of the old Stellenrust farm.

Kevin Arnold has built a brilliant team at Waterford built around his own winemaking prowess backed up by the outstanding talents of winemaker Mark le Roux. The Estate is really performing at the very peak of its powers making outstanding red and white wines both with the ability to age gracefully.

The Estate itself is also worth a visit if you ever happen to find yourself in the region and Kevin’s ‘safari tour’ of the property is something not to be missed!

At Waterford Estate, they wish to explore all the senses– sight, smell, sound, touch and taste, in order for their guests to experience both what is inside and outside the bottle, they call this the Waterford Way.

Domaine Patrick Vauvy Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2017

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley 2018

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Domaine Gayda Flying Solo Grenache Blanc Viognier IGP Pays D'Oc Quick View

Domaine Gayda Flying Solo Grenache Blanc Viognier IGP Pays D’Oc 2017

Fresh, intensely floral, yet very fruity - apple blossom and lemon aromas give way to peach, orange and all manner of tropical fruit nuances, leading to an intense grapiness on the palate. This really is packed with flavour, combining a touch of richness with gorgeous acidity and a subtle herbiness. A beautifully made wine of real elegance - and brilliant value for money.

Aromo Viognier Quick View

Aromo Viognier 2018

Full bodied white with a rich background of savoury notes, a very aromatic peach and mayblossom fruit character, but without any sweetness. No oak and fresh fruit makes this wine a real winner. The Aromo wines have a great charm and appeal and this is no exception.
