Winemaker: Kevin Grant. A gorgeous expression of Chardonnay, this shows the elegance that the variety can offer when made right. The bouquet is pretty and feminine, with forward scents of fynbos, white flowers, Gala apple, firm peach and a hint of minerality. There's a subtle seam of oak influence throughout, but it dances in the background, offering soft accents of toasted brioche and sweet spice. There's a pleasant creaminess to the palate, but it's balanced by bright acidity and a hit of savory salinity. A well-balanced wine, this will hold well through 2022.
