Roadside Padstals or “farmstalls” offering a range of farm produce goods and crafts are popular throughout South Africa. From simple shacks to elaborate venues, you’ll drive out of your way to find your favourite.
Our modern take on this classic favourite, the lightly oaked MAN Chardonnay reminds people why they love to drink Chardonnay.
Our refreshing and delicious wine is well balanced, with typical Chardonnay marmalade and citrus flavours, backed by a light oak and refreshing melon and tropical fruit bouquet.
From the winemaker:
The richest and fullest white wine in the MAN range, we've won fans with the very delicate oak flavours that are complemented by prominent fruit flavours and butterscotch notes. After a great deal of experimentation, we found the perfect balance by fermenting 10-20% of the wine in small American oak barrels, and keeping the rest of the wine on the lees for up to six months. Complex yet elegant, we're very proud of this grown-up Chardonnay.
A perennial crowd-pleaser, this wine was made for summer sundowners. It pairs well with grilled fish, gnocchi and most creamy dishes, or serve chilled on its own as a well-earned reward at the end of a tough day.
