This boutique winery was founded in 1989 by renowned Burgundian winemaker, Paul Bouchard and South African Pinot Noir pioneer, Peter Finlayson. Situated in the cool climate Hemel-en-Aarde Valley in Walker Bay, 110 kilometres south east of Cape Town, the 22 hectares of vineyard are laid out according to Burgundian principles and more than half are planted with Pinot Noir. The vineyards have soils of a distinctive clay-rich Bokkeveld shale (gravel and shale) and the nearby, cold ocean provides a cooling effect on the land.

Press Review

''Impressive, rich layers of stone fruit engage the nose with a vivacity from background honeyed citrus. The palate is fresh and crisp, where weighty tension between mouth-watering fruit and a vibrant acidity makes this chardonnay both rich and excitedly refreshing. Rounded with good juicy length, pair it with a fish pie, roast chicken or gilled salmon. 92/100''
