Intro to Rustenberg Stellenbosch Chardonnay –
Rustenberg Stellenbosch Chardonnay South Africa is a world class Chardonnay from quality grapes. This wine is from cool vineyards & has intense apricot & orange zest aromas, & marzipan & vanilla from fermentation. Subtle oak-aging adds another dimension to this wine so it complements many styles of food.
Full description and wine making –
Rustenberg is a well know producer of high quality Chardonnays and the Stellenbosch Chardonnay embodies our house style. Careful tending and selection in the vineyard followed by tradition wild barrel fermentation and maturation produces a classic Chardonnay balancing the expression of fruit, freshness, full malolactic fermentation and the influence of oak.
The producer –
Recognised globally as one of South Africa’s top five wine estates, Rustenberg is also one of the oldest in the Cape, having been established in 1892. In 1940 the Rustenberg Farm, which sits 6km north of Stellenbosch, was bought by Peter Barlow. The Barlows have been at Rustenberg for over 60 years: the longest period any one family has owned the farm with Simon Barlow taking over the running of the farm in 1987, and Murray, his son, now involved with winemaking and marketing.
Vineyards producing the grapes for Rustenberg wines climb the rich red slopes of the Simonsberg and Helderberg; a range of slopes and aspects allows site-specific plantings that enhance varietal characteristics. With a long and very proud history of producing exceptional wines, Rustenberg’s winemaking style is simple: produce quality wines true to the style of the estate and the brand.
Drink with –
The tropical fruit notes and full soft texture mean this wine goes well with creamy and slightly spicy dishes.
