Esona Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2010
By Christian Eedes, 8 November 2012
The Esona vineyards are in Robertson and the wines are made at Arendsig by Lourens van der Westhuizen. Scores and tasting notes for two of its current release wines below:
Esona Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2010: 15/20
Citrus, vanilla and slight buttery note on the nose and palate. Medium bodied. Unassuming and entirely likeable.
Esona Single Vineyard Shiraz 2010: 14.5/20
Red fruit and slight reductive/rubbery note on the nose. Medium bodied with moderate acidity and soft tannins. Hint of spice saves it from being too plain.
