Kershaw G.P.S. Lower Duivenhoks River Chardonnay 2019
Pale straw in colour. Appealing aromas of yellow peach, fresh bread dough and baked apple with cinnamon. There is ripeness and intensity to the 2019 GPS Chardonnay with a creaminess of texture and almost mid-palate sweetness that displays pineapple tart, peach melba, orange peel oil and apricot clafoutis. This mid-palate fleshiness and depth of flavour are kept beautifully in check by the cleansing tension of acidity. An elongated finish unfolds further nuances: unburnt joss sticks, pine needles, slivered almonds and oat pithiness.
