MENU's Wine of the Week Bateleur Single Vineyard 2015 Chardonnay from De Wetshof

This, for us, is the top of the range as Chardonnays go. Full of limestone minerality on the nose and palate, with hints of green limes as well and perfumed with William pears, lemon drops and gentle incense wood
Full on the palate, with apples, limes and some good chalky tannins; nicely crisp and crying out for some delicate meat, seafood or fish dish with a rich sauce. Just released this week and R417 a bottle. Very good value is the magnum at R545 (prices are from the farm)
