This wine is a great expression of a lightly oaked Chardonnay, bursting with citrus and fresh granny smith apple notes followed by notes of white peach and complimented with subtle hints of oak in the background. These characteristics follow through onto the palate that reveals the natural, ﬁne and fresh acidity of the wine with a lingering aftertaste.

This is Paul Cluver's entry level Chardonnay, so named to replicate the village classification in Burgundy.
Enjoy on its own or with a creamy seafood pasta, fresh line fish or roasted chicken dish.
Paul Cluver Wines is a family owned and family run winery, focused on producing world class wines that reflect the uniqueness of the cool-climate Elgin terroir. The family is proud to have pioneered the Elgin appellation and for being a leader in sustainable farming.
“This remains the benchmark Elgin producer of wine and in their Seven Flags Chardonnay, Andries Burger has conjured one of the standouts of the vintage, white or red. Just a showstopper of a Chardonnay that gives a lot of Burgundy a run for its money (and I’ve tasted a lot of white Burgundy). If you want to know how good South African whites can be, then look no further than Paul Cluver.”
