Kara-Tara is a new joint-venture between Rüdger van Wyk (2018 Diners Club Young Winemaker of the Year) and José Conde of Stark-Condé Wines. The name “Kara-Tara” refers to a small town near Knysna, located in South Africa where the owner and winemaker, Rüdger van Wyk grew up. Translated from the Khoisan, the language from the first people in Southern Africa, it means “deep dark shadows” and refers to the Karatara river that runs through the town.
With classic notes of lemon zest and grapefruit, this new to the UG shelf Chardonnay packs a punch worthy of fall evenings on the porch.
