Fleur Du Cap Chardonnay

For our Essence du Cap range, we follow a best-of-all-worlds approach where we carefully identify and separate blocks that offer different characteristics to a blend. Our winemakers create building blocks during harvest time by using the finest grapes from different vineyard blocks on different farms, using more than one type of yeast or oak barrel. This allows our passionate team to sit down after harvest time and literally “build” an exceptional wine through careful blending and tasting.



Western Cape, South Africa

100% Chardonnay

More Information - Fleur Du Cap Chardonnay

This medium bodied Chardonnay is brilliantly clear with light straw yellow hue and green tints. Fresh citrus notes are prominent on the nose and it opens up into tropical fruit aromas and just a hint of oak spice. This is a fruit driven wine with a lovely balance between acidity and fruit. The wood adds to the fullness but without dominating the wine. A beautiful balance between sweetness and acidity is complemented by a long lingering finish. Enjoy now or let it mature for 2 to 4 years.

Back Story & Wine Information

Fleur du Cap (French for “Flower of the Cape”) is greatly inspired by the Cape Floral Kingdom – a wildflower region famed for its natural beauty and rich biodiversity – with each species blossoming in the specific soil and climate best suited to their needs. It is this Cape Floral Kingdom that has greatly inspired our wines to not be defined by a single place or vineyard. Our philosophy is based around the freedom to explore – to find our grapes where they grow best, rather than be constrained by district, farm, climate or even vineyard. Our winemakers have access to the widest geography of vineyards in South Africa. This unrestricted journey across the Cape Winelands is what allows them to craft highly-lauded wines which exemplify regional excellence.

Rich seafood especially shellfish such as mussels and oysters as well as line fish work sublimely with this wine. It also stands up well to creamy curries and rich chicken dishes.
