Aria

Chardonnay
Current Vintage - 2016

With zesty orange peel and biscuit on the nose, the palate of this wine shows complex aromas of stone fruit, a pinch of vanilla and a creamy minerality.

Origin

Grapes for this wine originate from Delavia, Stellenbosch. The vinyard lies 500 meters above sea-level, against the south-western slopes of the Helderberg Mountains. Grown high up on the majestic hills of Stellenbosch, various cultivars contribute to this elegant blend. This finely crafted wine reflects old-world traditions with new world style.
