The Oddbins Take

Yardstick has evolved in language slightly; in the good old days when a metre was just something Jazz musicians ignored, a yardstick was a physical object. Think of a ruler... just longer. These days however, sensible nations do seem set on the metric system (*cough* sorry America) meaning yardstick is a bit more of an abstract term, a standard to judge the success or value of something.


That's why this wine is named so aptly; it demonstrates the evolution of South African Chardonnays, from over-oaked and over-ripe, to wines such as this, delicate with subtle use of oak giving the wine balance and finesse. If this is the yardstick were judging South African Chardonnays by there's no doubt this wine is in front of the rest.
