First created in 1994 from the classic blend traditionally reserved for sparkling wines, our Chardonnay (77%) Pinot Noir (23%) was the first South African still wine produced in this style. Today this wine is one of South Africa's iconic white blends, proudly produced by the von Arnim family in Franschoek. An unwooded Chardonnay blend, rounded off with Pinot Noir. Chardonnay contributes freshness and finesse to the blend while the Pinot provides body and structure. Expect citrus fruit underlined by a firm acidity. An abundance of white peach, citrus, lychee and red fruit on the nose with a delectable full mouthfeel
A good food wine pairs especially well with Mediterranean dishes
