The 1682 Brut Chardonnay has a pale lemon colour and a delicate mousse. It exudes freshness and pure fruit on the nose, vibrant notes of Granny Smith apple, candied lemon rind and white peach. It is lively on the palate, displaying finesse and complexity with a crisp acidity. Flavours of lemon cordial, honeyed nectarines, toasted croissant and pistachio are evident on the palate. It has a long, yet refreshing finish. This Cap Classique is the quintessential drink for all occasions.

The Estate
Steenberg’s origin goes back all the way to the year 1682. Catharina Ras founded the estate under the name ‘Swaaneweide’ and was one of the first women ever to own land. The restaurant ‘Tryn’ honours her legacy. The winery was laboriously restored in 1990. Since 2005, Graham Beck is the proud owner of the estate which is one of the few to cultivate the Italian vine Nebbiolo.
