2015 Five Soldiers Chardonnay
The top Chardonnay at Rustenberg has shifted in style in recent vintages towards more freshness and refinement. This is smoky, taut and concentrated, with a lovely interplay between lees, barrel-derived flavours and fruit intensity. Impressive stuff. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Jan 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Vineyards producing the grapes for Rustenberg's wines climb the rich red slopes of the Simonsberg and Helderberg. The style of wine determines the vineyard to be used: Rustenberg has a history of success with reds.
The viticulturist, Nico Walters, and his dedicated team have been working hard to rejuvenate their vineyards by planting virus-free vines imported from France. A small-scale nursery has been started for propagation, providing available rootstock for upgrading, replanting and experimentation. Controlled irrigation is used when necessary to alleviate stressed vines and maximise the quality of the grapes. All grapes are hand-harvested in the early mornings and all vineyard blocks vinified separately, then blended for added complexity.
