Rustenberg is a well-known producer of premium Chardonnay and the Unwooded Chardonnay is a fairly new addition to the Rustenberg range, one in contrast to the two wooded styles produced. The aim is to create a wine that, without the influence of oak, expresses the varietal character and generosity of Chardonnay when the finest fruit is vinified for this purpose.
Lime green straw in colour. Bright citrus aromas and fruit with elegant oatmeal whiffs, flinty and attractively lean on the palate ending with a refreshingly crisp finish. This wine will complement a lightly spiced meal, or simply be enjoyed on its own.
Lees aging adds palate weight and complements the wine’s citrus fruit profile to create a wine that can be enjoyed on its own or with food.
