2021 Cape Jaffa Chardonnay Mount Benson – At Cape Jaffa Wines they believe in making highly drinkable wines for every occasion. Their CJ range is all about everyday drinkablity and this Chardonnay is no exception. Their hallmark styles where grape growing, winemaking and blending all come together.
Chardonnay doesn’t need to be controversial. This style suits a range of Chardonnay, and non-Chardonnay, drinkers alike. It’s fruit-driven without being lean. It has had partial barrel fermentation, but the oak is subtle and balanced. Time on lees has given a soft and generous texture to the palate. Made in a style that not only compliments local seafood but is also suited to a lazy summer evening.
It has great stone fruit characters with a fresh citrus finish. Time in new French oak and lees stirring has created a beautiful creamy mouthfeel.
The gentle oaking and time on lees will see this wine develop well in the bottle over the next 3 years.
