Moreson, Mercator Chardonnay 2015, Franschhoek, South Africa
Tasting Note: An elegant chardonnay with flavor concentration and finesse and that gets oak and fruit balance right.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has a nose of vanilla baking spice, green apple and clove.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied chardonnay shows well-integrated tannin that is appreciatively light in touch rather than heavy handed.
The wine is also creamy in texture.
