Awards/Reviews

4 ½ Stars 2020 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Familiar ripe pickled lime, oatmeal undertones on approachable 18 (91 pts). Lots of juicy flavours, keen acidity, weighted by clean, creamy lees, subtle oak. A little aging should achieve greater harmony. Natural ferment, French oak, 32% new.

Winemaker Notes

Grapes for this wine are harvested from our highest altitude vineyards in the Bottelary Hills. Interestingly enough, it is also the only block of lime stone on any of our properties and our Grandfather decided many years ago to plant Chardonnay to this small patch of land.

 

The nose shows ripe citrus fruit with some toasted almond. The palate more concentrated with stronger nut flavours, some peach notes, but also a lingering mineral finish to it. Well judged oak preserves a butterscotch palate and promote a zesty acidity.
