Number One Constitution Road Chardonnay

Constitution Road Range

In 2004 Robertson Winery released a very special range to commemorate ten years of democracy in South Africa under the new constitution. Joining the Shiraz in this range, the Chardonnay is rounded and deeply satisfying. Rich interlaced aromas of citrus, buttered toast, marmalade and vanilla are prominent on the nose. Zesty acidity cuts the creamy texture on the palate followed by layers of citrus, pear and butterscotch that lingers on the finish. Pair it with a joyous gathering of family and friends as you celebrate abundance.
