2019 CRYSTALLUM Clay Shales Chardonnay 75cl (Hemel-en-Aarde, South Africa)
Style - Rich
Grapes - 100% Chardonnay
Tasting - Blink and you'll miss it. We got 48 bottles of this, arguably SA's top Chardonnay. If you love proper Puligny/Meursault then stop in and check this out, it has the same fresh spine and a gentle touch more of gingery stone fruit. Energy and richness. At once both sexy and intellectual.
FYI: I don't want to inflate the man's ego but there are plenty of people who think Peter Allan Finlayson, winemaker for Crystallum, is quite the most dishy chap in wine.
