2006 Koelfontein Ceres Chardonnay 82+ Points

2006 Koelfontein Chardonnay Ceres 82+ Points Last week I reveiwed the 2007 (85 Points) here is the missing puzzle after the stunning 2005, somehow the 2006 was the ugly duck.........the sun burnt fruit, was truly the negative factor, and the toastiness touch over bearing, masking the delicate fruit, however the candied citrus layers was fairly complex.
Juicy palate, ripe citrus, toasty oak and barley.
Delicate, fresh, lively structure, light bodied.
With some care in the vineyard, has potential to turn into a very fine minerally driven chardonnay………now until 2012
