Grape Varieties:

100% Chardonnay

Wine Description:

The grapes were sourced from a rare single vineyard bush vine block in the Stellenbosch region. The location of this vineyard is being kept a secret due to the scarcity of the grapes.

The wine was bottled on 15 February 2021 and only 3192 bottles were produced.

Method and Maturation:

The grapes were hand harvested at 22.5 balling and delivered in small lug boxes to the cellar.

The grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented naturally in barrel.

After fermentation the wine was racked and matured in French barrels for 14 months.

The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation to keep its freshness and primary fruit flavours.

The wine was not protein stabilised, cold stabilised or filtered.

Wine Tasting Notes:

The palate is full, yet remains delicate with a fresh finish and a persistent sea breeze salinity. A beautiful expression of well- balanced fruit with a fresh and acidity. There is a layered complexity and a sense of place that shines through in a balanced and nuanced fashion.

In the 1600s our hills were used as an outpost on the two-day trek from Cape Town to Stellenbosch. They were named “Bottelary” after a ship’s pantry. In 1946, our great-grandfather traded in the stark Karoo landscape for the exciting promise these hills had to offer. Today, it’s been our home for four generations. This blend celebrates our region’s harvest made by real farmers.

This stylish and powerful red blend is our all-rounder with notes of dark berries and cherries. The palate boasts richness, concentration and dense fruit.
