Lanzerac Mrs English (Chardonnay) 2016
Elizabeth Katherina English bought the farm Schoongezicht in 1914 for £18 000 and subsequently renamed the farm ‘Lanzerac’. She also bottled the first Lanzerac wine. This wine is a tribute to this formidable lady. A legacy that is the Lanzerac of today
The Lanzerac Mrs English 2016 is a limited selection of the finest Chardonnay barrels of the particular year. Subtle and elegant with a steely core, this wine perfectly mirrors its illustrious namesake in every way. The wine portrays freshness and perfume to the concentrated flavours of grapefruit, marmalade, and soft vanilla undertones. Careful oaking and extended lees contact have added texture and richness leaving the wine seamless, subtle and satisfying.
Partner it with indulgent foods such as lobster or fresh crab for a decadent feast. The Mrs. English can also be enjoyed with sea bass topped with a fennel puree or foie gras
