Delaire Graff, Banghoek Reserve Chardonnay 750ml 2019South Africa, Stellenbosch

Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'Sourced from parcels between 380 and 500 metres, none of which is over ten years' old, this is a bold, rich, slightly tropical style which reflects the vintage conditions. Honey and nectarine fruit flavours are balanced by acidity. Drink 2019-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100
'2018 has restrained limy, nutty nose - less fruity than Summercourt, more straightforward than Terraced Block. Soft & silky, with a good seam of lemony acidity. The 40% new oak integrated.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)
