Benguela Vinography Chardonnay 2017
This chardonnay delivers on the promise of balance, length, intensity and consentration, without being overt. The expressive palate is backed with integrity and the same flavours follows suit on the palate. Refined with a lingering saltiness to add finesse, connects the wine with its cool climate origin.
