Kaaimansgat is a South African chardonnay that I picked up a little over a year ago at the LCBO for about $18. Superb value. This is an elegant bottle of wine. Honeyed, peachy, almost floral, nose. On the tongue a terrific blend of apple, slight citrus, and honey. There’s a hint of oak, but it’s not overpowering. Long buttery finish. Although it’s a "new world" chardonnay, it’s much closer to a French style than Californian or Australian.
I’d buy this again. For my money, it’s stiff competition for many bottles at twice the price.
