Bellingham Chardonnay

blog 66

In my quest for good, well priced, widely available wines I came across this Chardonnay which drew my eye… Most of us would probably associate South Africa primarily with Chenin Blanc. Tesco sells this Stellenbosch Chardonnay for £11; not cheap and at that price I have expectations…

Tasting notes: Has a really good nose which invites tasting. Citrus, melon and very little New World oak to it. I liked it – but I’m not convinced it should command this price point because I’ve tasted better, cheaper…
