Expressive grapefruit and golden delicious apple aromas detailed with graceful lime blossom.” Boschendal Elgin Chardonnay is singular in its expression of the pristine geographical nuances and unique character typical of its cool climate vineyard origins.

 

Vibrant pale gold with a glimmer of green. Expressive grapefruit and golden delicious apple aromas detailed with graceful lime blossom, frangipani and white truffle aromas further embellished by discreet vanilla oak spice that carries through to a generous palate that is powerful yet intricate with pronounced citrus fruit purity layered with hints of oak and signature minerality that finish with remarkable intensity and length.

 

A multi-faceted wine with beautiful balance drinking well in the freshness of youth with the potential to develop further depth and secondary intrigue for up to 6 years from vintage. 

 

An intricate wine that is best enjoyed chilled.

Country Of Origin: South Africa

Set in the Drakenstein Valley surrounded by dramatic mountain landscapes, lush gardens and vines, the original farmstead complex is now a national monument with a rich and intriguing history of more than 300 years.

 

Today, Boschendal is a Cape winelands icon and a cherished wine and food destination. The vineyards and fruit trees have been joined by vegetable gardens and a growing herd of free range, 100% pasture fed Angus cattle reflecting a commitment to serving wholesome farm-to-table food.

 

This Chardonnay comes from unirrigated vineyards on mountain slopes just a stone’s throw away from the Atlantic Ocean. Well-drained, rocky Bokkeveld Shale soils are distinguished by a layer of clay. Cooler than average days and nights mean slow ripening of these low-yielding blocks producing all the hallmark characters of Elgin terroir.
