Tasting Note

This is Burgundy-style Chardonnay: lightly oaked with a mineral depth and great elegance. The South African sunshine adds warmth, ripeness and creamy richness to the mix making this a great value alternative to more pricey White Burgundies.

The Producer

Julien Schaal

Winemaker Julien Schaal is originally from Alsace, but fell in love with South Africa while working the 2003 harvest in Hermanus. Returning the following year he cemented his friendship with Gordon Newton Johnson - owner of the Newton Johnson vineyards in the Hemel-en Aarde Valley. After a late night, and a few of the obligatory brandies, he was persuaded use all his savings to start a new venture… His first vintage was in 2005 and since then has grown every year. He still spends time in Alsace producing Riesling Grand Cru – and shuttles between France and South Africa following the seasons.
