89 Point Wine Enthusiast South African Chardonnay

Backsberg Cellars has been producing wines in South Africa for 3 generations. They are committed to sustainability, producing carbon neutral wines, and follow many environmentally friendly practices, including using lightweight bottles. The grapes are lightly pressed for gentle extraction, and then flash pasteurized (pre-fermentation.) On the nose you’ll detect lemon zest, melon and hazelnut characteristics. Once on the palate you’ll notice that the natural acidity is balanced by fruit flavors of white peach, providing a medium-bodied palate with a long, rewarding finish. 100% Chardonnay, this wine will pair well with cold salads, cold meats and light pasta dishes, as well as as stand-alone wine. Listed as a No. 3 Top 18 “White Wines under $18” in the 2018 Jewish Week Kosher Wine Guide, and scored 89 Points by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, and given a Silver Medal by both the WSWA Wine Competition and Kosher, Kosher for Passover and Mevushal.
