Western Cape, South Africa
In 2017, Stellenbosch was the epicenter of our world, Fijnbosch provided the core intensity with flavors of citrus, orange blossom, toasty brioche and peach. The E. Bruwer vineyard in Robertson adds the rich core of ripe peach and apricot with a full rounded mouthfeel. The final two vineyard utilized were Kaaimansgat and Vleiplaas. These two vineyards added complexity to the wine. The Kaaimansgat vineyard adds minerality, which helps define the back palate. While Vleiplaas brings a hint of herbal character, providing the acid core giving the Chardonnay a delicate balance that is refreshing and tightly wound.
