Boutique Wines of Constantia, Cape Town - Est. 1890
The Chardonnay St Leger is a classic Burgundy style blend, created from the viticultural and tasting efforts of some of the leading winemakers in South Africa. To produce this artisanal small-batch Chardonnay, premium parcels of cool climate fruit sourced from the Elgin area were gently barrel fermented and slowly matured in a combination of terracotta amphorae and new french oak. Made only in exceptional years, this elegant wine faithfully draws the characteristics of the vintage through the soil and vines into the bottle, with as little intervention as possible. The result is a soft elegant Chardonnay that allows the delicate aromatics and flavours of the grapes to be fully expressed.
