Draaiboek Onskuld Chardonnay 2020
By Christian Eedes, 21 October 2021
Onskuld Chardonnay 2020 from the negociant operation Draaiboek Wines has been popping up on social media of late so I was intrigued to try a bottle. Grapes are from Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge and winemaking is by Stephanie Wiid of Thistle & Weed. The nose is shy with subtle notes of citrus and vanilla while the palate is light-bodied with bright acidity and a pithy finish. It’s a nicely understated offering but not cheap, selling for R422 a bottle from Wine Village in Hermanus.
CE’s rating: 89/100.
