Baroness Nadine 2018, Western Cape South Africa (Three Bottle Case)

£83.85 £49.95

Baroness Nadine is the only white wine produced at Rupert and Rothschild Vignerons, in Simonsberg South Africa. The partnership was formed in 1997 and now produces three wines, all of which are complex yet contrasting in style. Baroness Nadine is a wonderfully rich and nutty Chardonnay that undergoes an intricate vinification process resulting in a complex wine. Baroness Nadine provides a creamy southern Burgundian style at just a fraction of the price compared to its French counterparts. This ever improving wine now ranks among the finest whites’ in the Rothschild portfolio.

Tasting notes

Quite possibly the finest vintage of Nadine ever produced. Fresh citrus notes, roasted hazelnut, macadamia, charred vanilla, creamy orchard fruit and honeydew melon – a beautifully enticing and complex nose. This is a wonderful wine with a core of ripe fruit all held together by a luxurious yet judicious streak of rich oak. Baroness Nadine 2018 is crafted in a different style compared to a few years back – the style is much more in keeping with fashion, and subsequently the use of new French oak has been toned down. Nadine 2018 has a racy edge balanced beautifully against the buttery creaminess.  Drink now or hold for five years.
