Le Bonheur Chardonnay 2021

Western Cape, South AfricaLe Bonheur 2020 was the first year since the drought years that began back in 2014. The rain has been a big help in helping to express the chardonnay. The wine comes from a mix of blocks with different characteristics, from citrus driven to white pear and floral styles. It was relatively fresh, with some oak showing through but not out of place. It has the complexity of a much more expensive chardonnay, but the freshness makes it fun to drink, with enough ripeness to capture that crowd. Try this with a favourite Thai curry. It's primarily stainless steel ferment before going to barrel for three months. Back up the truck, there is super value here.Tasted: 03 June 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
