This wine is sunshine in a bottle and is certainly a crowd pleaser. Apart from looking impressive, magnum bottles tend to last longer too. A beautiful expression of Chardonnay with its fruit-forward style.

'Mandarin brightness with butter & caramel oak notes on 2017. Vivid, vibrant & fresh, with spice highlights & rounded richness from 11 months in French wood, ramped to 50% new from 33% on 2016 (94 pts). Approachable, but so much better in a few years.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'The 2017 Chardonnay was matured for 10 to 11 months in 225-liter French oak barrels, 30% new. It has an attractive bouquet of lemon curd and light apricot aromas, and the oak is judiciously used. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, light apricot and orange peel notes and a long, precise finish. This is a finely crafted Chardonnay. Recommended.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100 (Aug 2018)

'Gentle peach and white blossom brushed with autumn leaf. Zippy lime and grapefruit palate with fresh zesty vibrancy, broad creamy finish.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 90/100 (Silver)

Producer information Bartinney was established in 1912 and has belonged to the Jordaan family since 1953. The 28-hectare farm is located in Stellenbosch overlooking the Banhoek Valley. ‘The winged figure depicted on each bottle is called ‘Elevage’ and symbolises the French art of the selective maturing and ascension of a wine to its ultimate heights, unfurling its most noble traits,’ explains Bartinney. Their vines are planted on the slopes of the Botmaskop mountains reaching elevations up to 550m above sea level and slopes of up to 45 degrees. They produce three main cultivars, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
