Rustenberg Five Soldiers Chardonnay
This wine is named after the five large stone pine trees on a hill standing sentinel over the Five Soldiers vineyards. The Five Soldiers is the apex of Chardonnay at Rustenberg and is a highly collected wine.
Characterised by measured power and complexity, it is designed to be drunk with food and will benefit from a few years of careful cellaring. It illustrates the true character of each vintage and is a barrel selection of the finest batches of Chardonnay each year.
Buttery, toasty, creamy and rich, but still with a certain finesse from the fruit and acidity. Fresh tropical fruit, from pineapple to guava, and a slight reductive note of sesame seeds mixed in with the oaky vanilla.
