Chardonnay | 2022

An enchanting blend of orange blossom, subtle notes of toasty brioche and bright citrus fruit on the bouquet, all enhanced by a pronounced limey intensity. Lean and linear in structure, hints of peaches and cream add a delicate layer of complexity, underscored by a zesty citrus acidity culminating in a long and satisfying finish.

About Hartenberg Chardonnay

Already known for our world-class Shiraz, it seems our Chardonnay is Hartenberg’s next star with it’s consistency in ratings and awards. Grapes were handpicked in the early morning of each of the 4 days of picking so as to capture the subtle primary flavours that the variety offers. Every batch from each of the morning picks as well as those of the individual parcels were kept separate in the cellar so as to aid quality selection when it came to assembling the final blend.
