4 ½ Stars 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

For earlier drinking than stablemates but 18 (93 pts) beautifully proportioned & fine, bright citrus acidity drawing out the finish & 30% new oak less overt. Own Banhoek grapes plus small portion from Helderberg. All the wines bunch pressed.

Winemaker Notes


Taken from the Latin word for “from the cape,” Capensis is inspired by the dramatic landscape of South Africa. Produced from some of the highest-elevation vineyards in the Western Cape, winemaker Graham Weerts creates a terroir-expressive Chardonnay that honors the greatness of South Africa.

Silky textured and elegant, with an aromatic explosion of lime, lemon, orange blossom, jasmine and spice. A tight palate of citrus and rich minerals drives a saline finish, light on its feet yet dense and long.
