2015 Chardonnay Haskell Vineyards
|Origin||South Africa, Stellenbosch|
More occluded by winemaking tricks on the nose. Richer and sweeter than the regular bottling but I'm not sure it's better. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Aromas of coffee, burned caramel, roasted nuts and white peach. Palate is framed by youthful acidity, with harmonious fruit and oak balance. The wine finishes with subtle toasted almond and baked bread aftertaste flavours. Winemaker's notes (Aug 2017)
The Haskell Vineyards estate is in the Helderberg, the revered Stellenbosch sub-region which contains many of South Africa's greatest wine names, the 23 hectares of vineyards neighbouring Rust en Vrede, Stellenzicht and Bilton.Dombeya is the original title of the estate and is the name for a wild pear tree that is native to the area. Designed to represent great value at its price point and to offer an insight into the capacity of the estate to make stylish wines of individuality. Haskell and Dombeya wines are made by leading winemaker and wine judge, Rianie Strydom, who is also the General Manager for Haskell Vineyards. Before moving to Haskell Vineyards, Rianie was the winemaker at the highly regarded Simonsberg estate, Morgenhof, for ten years.
Even before release, the Haskell brand has been making international wine waves. Awarded an elite five star rating in the upcoming 2010 John Platter Guide, Haskell also made history by becoming the first South African winery to win Best Red Wine and Best Wine in Show at the prestigious 2009 Tri-Nations Challenge, a yearly competition between the finest wines of Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
