Môreson Mercator Chardonnay, Franschhoek, South Africa, 2017
Moreson’s Medal Magnet Mercator Chardonnay receives twelve months in French Oak before bottling, then a further twelve months of maturation at the winery in bottle before release to the eagerly awaiting public. The wine is rich and buttery but with an elegance that is testament to the skills of winemaker Clayton Reabow. Skills recently noted for earning him the accolade of Diner’s Club Winemaker of the Year 2018, specifically for making this wine.
I’d always rather have two bottles of Mercator than just one of Montrachet or Meursault. And you can take that to the bank, along with all the money you’ll save buying this rather than French equivalents.
