A world class South African barrel-fermented Chardonnay from superstar winemaker Kevin Grant.

A beautiful 2020 Chardonnay from South African Chardonnay specialist, Kevin Grant. Spontaneous and complete barrel fermentation and subsequent ageing in specially selected French oak barrels sourced exclusively from Burgundian coopers contribute to the gentle, minimalist, non-interventionist winemaking approach. This soil-driven Chardonnay is New World in provenance but Old World in stylistic leaning. Athletic in structure, it effortlessly manages to be both subtle and intense. Vibrant and spicy, with alluring creamy notes. An assertive mineral acidity beautifully balances a compelling intensity of fruit. There is a surprising touch of “grip” to the finish, deftly rounded off with complex savoury, briny, and flinty notes. A stylish, world-class Chardonnay.
