(4/2021) Looking for a beautifully layered, structured and complete Chardonnay that doesn't cost $50? You just found it. Sourced from two vineyard sites in the notoriously cold Ceres Plateau appellation of South Africa, the grapes for the Callender Peak Chardonnay were whole bunch pressed then fermented in French barriques, where it remained on its lees for a further ten months of aging. The resulting wine delivers compelling notes of honeycomb, vanilla, tart citrus, freshly cut apples and flint along with hints of chalkiness. A powerful palate unwinds to reveal creamy texture and focused acidity which makes it a wonderful match with seafood, particularly salmon and lobster. Due to the especially low yield from these rocky vineyards, a mere 160 cases were produced. At our price, which appears to handily beat every listing on the planet, this one over-delivers in a big way. Grab it while you can!
