The 2012 Chardonnay is barrel-fermented and sees 10 months in 600-liter French oak barrels (30% new). It has a fine white peach and dried pineapple-scented bouquet that has fine lift and verve. The palate is bright and zest on the entry with a fine line of acidity, plenty of subtle pineapple and mango flavors, and a lithe, satisfying, vibrant finish. Very fine. Drink now-2016.

Ripe and dense, with gorgeous white peach, Jonagold apple, melon and verbena flavors, lined with heather honey and glazed pear notes. The long finish feels languid at first but the acidity is well-buried, keeping this balanced in the end. Drink now. 450 cases made. –JM

Wine maker notes
Grapes for this wine are picked on the picturesque south facing Noordhoek slopes from the Peninsula’s southern most vineyards. Our Cape Point Vineyards Chardonnay is barrel fermented for 11 months in 40% new oak, and the remainder 2nd and 3rd fill barrels. The wine shows a complex array of citrus, apricot, oatmeal and honey flavours with strong minerality and some subtle toasty notes. This all follows onto a wonderfully full palate with crisp acids and great length. This chardonnay is drinking beautifully at present, but try to exercise patience as it will only improve over the next 2-5 years.
