Tasting Notes

The wine has a nose of proving sourdough with a fine bead. The palate releases notes of fresh almonds, warm sand and apricot kernel.

Producer details

The Earth’s mantle thrusts up above the gentle town of Franschhoek, a wild slice of untamed mountain on which sits a farm named Wildeberg. An established wine region for some 350 years, sensible generations never thought to plant a vine here until a happy band of idealists recently craned their necks up at this hillside and, dizzy with hope, decided to give it a go. Franschhoek is on the very edge of the south-eastern corner of the Cape’s venerable Coastal Region, indeed Wildeberg’s property border runs over the top of the mountain where the Coastal Region gives way to the baboon-strewn road to Grabouw and the wider Western Cape.

In the vineyard

100% Chardonnay is used from the Banghoek area.

In the winery

Whole bunch pressed and naturally settled for 48 hours, then naturally fermented in old 600 litre French oak barrels and matured in barrel for 4 months. The wine is then bottled to undergo second fermentation and spends 30 months on its lees before disgorgement. No dosage was added, thus a Brut Nature.

Food Recommendations

A wonderful pre-cursor to any meal, celebrating an event or just life itself.
