An elegant, lightly oaked Chardonnay with a lovely creamy texture cut by vivid acidity. Good concentration of lemon, apricot, and peach.

Winemaker Notes

What a vintage! The vintage was very early compared to 2019. Enough winter rain in 2019 and very cool growing conditions pathed the way for a super quality vintage in 2020. Yields in the vineyards was back to normal and balance was restored after 3 years of drought. The higher altitude Stellenbosch vineyards that face False Bay contributed texture and fruit, while the Robertson vineyards generally contributed more minerality owing to the limestone-based soils.

Elegant and complex. Limey fruit with perfect oak balance and a mineral finish on the palate.
