Sterhuis Astra 2007

By , 30 November 2011

A shining light.

The maiden vintage 2006 of this Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc blend from Johan Kruger of Sterhuis in Bottelary famously rated 5 Stars in the 2009 edition of Platter’s. The 2007 is delicious right now although I suspect at its peak. Leesy, nutty and even earthy notes on the nose before a palate that shows a wide range of flavour: lime, lemon, peach and apricot. Rich and broad in structure balanced by tangy acidity. Score: 16.5/20.
