Honey Drop Chardonnay 2020/21, South Africa

Honey Drop Chardonnay 2020/21, South Africa

Rate this product
75CL
ABV 13.50%

SOUTH AFRICA

The Honey Drop is an unapologetically big, bold and rich Chardonnay. It's made about as close to the sea as you can get in Stellenbosch. Grapes here benefit from a luxuriously long ripening period, allowing complex flavour compounds to develop slowly. They get to soak up the sun and be cooled by sea breezes. Most importantly, it brings plenty of flavour to your glass. Expect heady flavours of cream, honey, butterscotch and brioche. Decadently rich, it's fantastic with buttery roast chicken.

Rich, complex, typical chardonnay. Lingers a long time on the tastebuds.

This wine has mixed reviews but I like it very much. It tastes just as described, complex, full of flavour. One to savour slowly.

Well ….I’m glad I tasted this in store as on reading the reviews I may not have bought it …. As advised by Majestic Wirral this is a twiglet/ marmite wine … but as previous reviewers have said you’re in or you’re out …. For myself and my partner we’re in

There was something off about this wine which I couldn’t put my finger on. We described cream soda, then custard, maybe rhubarb and custard sweets! just think the wine has been overworked, too much malo and oak and sickly. Mine went down the drain

The name misleads: no honey yet I COULD only drink a drop. Wife finds it disgusting and gave up at once; I stupidly persevered . A mistake. Maybe I can cook with it? A strange mix of reviews I see. Maybe quality control needs improving? Awful!

Easy drinking,medium oak, dry, easily identifiable chardonnay. Medium length.

Poor really. The only element which is missing from the description is that it is oaked. I feel misled. I would never have bought it had the description been accurate.

While there were slight oak notes, I felt this was more of a citrus forward Chardonnay rather than creamy and buttery.
Well balanced but I don’t think the description of cream, butter and brioche is accurate.

Classic chardonnay taste, a bit buttery. Taste lingers long enough, makes you want to sip slowly to enjoy for longer.

Not to my taste at all. Too sweet and cloying, not my idea of chardonnay.

Thank goodness that there is still a winemaker that understands that we don’t all want the trendy, zingy, crisp, steel vat Chardonnay’s that sob at mere mention of oak ageing. This is a great wine, full of depth. A “proper” Chardonnay at a great price.
