'Fermented/year in 50% new 300L French oak, 2019 has buttery apple pie crust richness & spice, vanilla cream too, yet lingering impression is one of lightness, elegance, citrus freshness & clean minerality. Big step up on 2018 (4 stars, 88 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (92/100)

'This rich, decadent barrel fermented chardonnay, shows flavours of buttery crust, baked apple pie, a lengthy mid palate of ripe citrus and a tight mineral finish. Can be enjoyed on its own, or paired with seafood or poultry.' – Anneke Potgieter, Winemaker

Producer information Bellevue Wine Estate was established in 1861 by Dirk Cloete Morkel and remains in the Morkel family today. Although this Stellenbosch farm was originally purchased for livestock, it was later planted with vines and, in 1953, was one of the first to have Pinotage planted on a commercial scale. In fact, Bellevue’s Pinotage became the General Smuts Trophy Winner in 1959 and their special 1953 Pinotage block is still in full production today. With 40+ year-old vines, Bellevue boasts some of the oldest vineyards in South Africa.
