The leading European drinks trade publication, The Drinks Business, named the Op die Berg Chardonnay as one of the best-performing Chardonnays under £20 in The Drinks Business Global Chardonnay Masters 2016. Winners included wines from Sicily, to Israel and Australia.
Celebrating the first award of 2017!
What makes this award special is the judging process – each of these Chardonnays has been judged blind without any knowledge of their source country, allowing their experts to asses them purely for quality without prejudice about their region of origin. The winning wines were selected by an exacting panel of judges, made up of Masters of Wine and Master Sommeliers.
The wine has an amazing chemical composition with high acidity and great citrus fruit notes. It was kept for eight months in oak barrels, but doesn’t show strong wood characteristics!
De Grendel’s award winning wines are available online at www.degrendel.co.za, at the De Grendel Tasting Room and at the De Grendel Restaurant.
