Maritime mist that enters the valley floor in the evening and exits early in the morning is a typical feature of the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. It is here where our Chardonnay vineyards are located, with their roots deep in the decomposed granite soils and gain full benefit from the gentle air stream deriving from the cool south Atlantic Ocean. This wine expresses the delicate fruit of the varietal by means of lime, citrus blossom, and peach. The light oak regime enables the wine to be a true reflection of its terroir, showing off its texture and pure salinity. Sophisticated in style yet very versatile and can be enjoyed on its own but will pair well with seafood dishes, creamy pastas, and even spicy foods like vegetable curries.
