Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses

Located in South Africa's Paarl region, the Glen Carlou Winery is known for its internationally acclaimed Chardonnay and Bordeaux varietals. At the base of the Simonsberg Mountains, Glen Carlou's vineyards are influenced by the unique weather of the Cape, where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. The fruit for this Chardonnay is sourced from ten different vineyard sites. All fruit for this wine is hand harvested. Glen Carlou uses special water-bent barrels from a cooper in France. These sophisticated barrels impart a light touch of oak and allow the fruit to express itself fully. 100% Barrel fermented in 30% new oak, then aged 10 months in barrel. A 94 Point Platinum Award winner in the Critics Challenge Wine Competition. They said “Chardonnay shows a toasty oak nose with hints of lemon oil and pie spices. On the palate aromas of lemon oil and pear are bright and distinctive. Well balanced and beautifully structured.”
