The Valley is the cheaper of Nico Grobler’s two Chardonnays, but it illustrates his feel for the variety. Whole bunch pressed with ageing in 5% new barrels from his friend Bruno Lorenzon, it’s nuanced, layered and textured with nutmeg and lemon butter flavours and a stony finish. 2023-26
The beautiful Elgin Valley is a cool climate high inland plateau, completely surrounded by mountains. Just 70 km from Cape Town, South Africa, it is rapidly gaining a reputation for the production of premium quality wines.
We are slowly unlocking the secret of the Elgin Valley. The range of wines are designed to be fresh, pure, fruit driven, light and accessible with all the fundamentals of premium wine whilst still showcasing the unique profile from the Elgin Valley.
Fresh, pure and clean, citrus, apples and pears. Linear and tight with a mineral core coated with some beautiful Elgin fruit ending in a long clean finish.
