This is very fine - juicy with lots of minerality. There’s also plenty of generous fruit, which is juicy and nicely balanced: notes of greengage and a lot of citrus. The finish is structured and long, with mouth watering salinity abounding.
Made with full malolactic - "it's not really a choice, it just kicks in," says Gordon Newton Johnson - this comes from a cooler, south-facing slope that tends to produce a steely style. Aged in 11% new wood, it's sappy, focused and refreshing, with lime and lemongrass flavours and a hint of struck match. 2023-28
Blending three different components from both sides of the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, this is a beautifully judged Chardonnay from a South African master of the variety. Voluptuous and textured, yet focused and energetic at the same time, it has struck match top notes, 22% new oak, citrus and vanilla spice flavours and a pithy, salty finish. 2024-30
