NEW! J.H. Meyer 'Palmiet' Chardonnay, Elgin, South Africa 2017

19.95

We love finding wines that don't know how good they are and this is a classic example, one of the finest Chardonnays for the price that money can buy. It's made by Johan 'Stompie' Meyer and has little details of flavour that elevate it beyond the everyday, like the tweezered micro-herbs and edible flowers that make the difference between a homely dish and a Michelin Star. It's taut and exciting, picking up some mineral inflections from the shale soil with a glacial purity to the white-fleshed fruits and hints of lime blossom and cordite to add intrigue. Unfined, unfiltered. No added sulphites. Aged in 500 litre barrels. 13.5% alc. Drink now- 2023.


Press review:

Jancis Robinson: “Just a touch of smoky reduction and sour-fresh grapefruit and lemon. As it opens, it becomes richer and the fruit shines, pure and lively, intense and fresh on the palate, that touch of reduction adding complexity. Delicious and changing all the time in the glass. Good Value. 13.5%. Drink 2020-2025.” 17 points
