A little more on the wine: Kershaw Clonal Selection Chardonnay, Elgin, South Africa 2014
Richard Kershaw is a MW, former chef, and now winemaker working in Elgin, the coolest region in South Africa. His particular interest lies in the importance of both vineyard location and vine clones. In this case, he uses some of the Dijon clones of Chardonnay – 96, 95 & 76 since you ask – in very specific sites to produce arguably the most elegant and long-lived Chardonnay in South Africa today. Very judicious use of oak means it is a supporting element rather than a dominant flavour, while a palate of white peach, nectarine and oatmeal-like savouriness provides a perfectly balanced finish.
