Glen Carlou 2013 Chardonnay, Paarl, South Africa
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.”

Surprise white
I love this wine! When I ordered it ,I found it hard to believe that a chard could have a 94 rating at the price. This wine lived up to the rating and was surprisingly complex yet light and fresh tasting. I wish I had bought more!

Burgundian Character at a New World Price
Here is one to grab by the case. The Glen Carlou Chardonnay has the clean flavors and lushness you get from Burgundy at a price that makes it affordable for anyone. Just an easy-drinking, delicious white for anytime!

I'd like to know if this has an oaky taste, please? Can someone please tell me if it has a strong buttery taste, like Rombauer, or if it's more fruity? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: It's oaky but not heavy and buttery. Actually, I like big oaky chards but I really enjoyed this one for a change. It had a nice citrus taste also which I do not generally like at all but it was nicely balanced with a mellow pear taste. I thought it was great for the price!
