Vrede en Lust Marguerite Chardonnay 2011

Named after Vrede en Lust’s first owner’s eldest daughter - Marguerite de Savoye.   The wine shows citrus, toasted nuts and butterscotch aromas followed by a creamy, well balanced palate with tones of almonds and pear.  Sourced from a selection of south sloping Chardonnay blocks on our Simonsberg-Paarl vineyards, this wine is produced on a limited basis.   The result is a vivid, complex fruit forward Chardonnay with gentle oak intervention on the elegant palate.
