The 2018 chardonnay grapes are specially sourced and hand selected by our Cellar Master from a ridge overlooking the ocean in Somerset West and a high-altitude slope on the side of the Simonsberg Mountain. These two locations are both relatively cool but for different physical influences. They combine magnificently to produce a rounded well-balanced wine. Grapes were harvested in two separate pickings from Somerset West adding to the complexity. 2018 harvest was hot and dry leading to reduced yields.

The holden manz Chardonnay 2018 has a bright, flinty nose with lime, pink grapefruit, hazelnuts and fig. Six month’s lees contact adds a creaminess and complexity, presenting an appealing full mouth and length. Elegant flavours of citrus and white blossom, knit with a minerality, some salinity and complex acidity to provide a long, smooth finish.
