The Private Collection Chardonnay 2019 shows lemon, cut green apples, fresh bread, nuts and a hint of beeswax on the nose. The palate is long and lingering, with refreshing acidity.
Virtual Tasting Note with Dirk van Zyl, Cellarmaster & Winemaker – SaxenburgChard2019.
It will complement most fish dishes or can be enjoyed with lighter meat dishes and creamy pasta.
Due to difficult conditions during the start of the 2019 vintage, it delivered a much smaller crop of Chardonnay. However, this smaller crop was healthy and intensely concentrated. This wine is 100% French oak fermented, but we make use of only a small percentage of new oak, thus ensuring that the oak is beautifully integrated and adds more to the palate weight, than the aroma of the wine.
