The 2015 vintage of Avontuur Estate’s premiere range Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve was released in the tasting room on the Estate late last week.
As always the wine is extremely likeable with orange citrus flavours dominating and the small percentage of Viognier blended in, adding that extra bit of complexity.
Chardonnay fans will find much to love in the wine as it has the typical butteriness of a wooded Chardonnay but the minerality and freshness which comes from less, rather than more wood contact.
Retailing at R132 from the tasting room, the 2015 is a sure fire charmer and will please regular and new fans of this long-time favourite from the Helderberg.
