Leeu Passant Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2018

$120.00

A remarkable wine, that offers everything you love about chardonnay and then some. Extremely aromatic with honey, white flowers, yellow peach, apricot, wood spice and lavender honey. Unbelievably intense, full bodied yet cut through with citrus acidy. Absolutely incredible muscle and vibrancy. Will live for a couple decades at least and then some. Waters Wine Co 

Andrea Mullineux makes this brilliant Chardonnay from a cool, False Bay-influenced vineyard at 600 metres on the Helderberg, using full malolactic, even in a warm, dry year like 2018 and 30% new wood. Leesy, vivid and focused, it has racy, stony acidity and flavours of lemongrass and buttered toast. 2021-26. 96 Points – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020

The 2018 Chardonnay has a very attractive bouquet with detailed scents of dried honey, yellow plum and touches of mango and beeswax. I could nose this all day! The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry, sporting gorgeous notes of orange peel and mango, and just a touch of spice toward the finish, which has a subtle resinous quality. Complex and engaging, this is a marvelous Chardonnay from Mr. and Mrs. Mullineux. Drink 2022-2038. 95 Points – Neal Martin, Vinous
