Joubert Tradauw Chardonnay

Platter 4 Stars

This Joubert Tradauw Chardonnay is a beauty. Joubert Tradauw is a superb tiny family winery in the Little Karoo, producing some excellent handcrafted wines in a natural style. Meyer Joubert farms organically (although not certified) and uses minimal additives or manipulation in the cellar. This Chardonnay is superb, as are his red wines.

Barrel fermented and left on the lees for 12 months to add body, weight and complexity. Initial citrus flavours with some vanilla, the oak is tempered and the whole wine has great balance of fruit, oak and natural acidity.

The 32 mg/l free SO2 was at bottling and will have reduced by now. This is very low for an oak matured white. It's a clean wine, very natural and a great choice for healthy drinking.

Joubert Tradauw ChardonnayT

ext taken from Joubert Tradauw 's website:

French oak matured and left on the lees for 12 months, bottled unfiltered. This elegant and feminine Chardonnay offers hints of toasted almonds, fynbos, honey and subtle vanilla. It has a full palate complemented with a ripe citrus burst on the finish. Drink through to 2018.

This wine is a beauty. The oak is tempered and the whole wine has great balance of fruit oak and acidity. It has improved quite dramatically with a few months in bottle and is drinking superbly. It is excellent value.

The 32 mg/l free SO2 was at bottling and will have reduced by now. This is very low for an oak matured white. It's a clean wine, very natural and a great choice for healthy drinking.
