Goedverwacht, Great Expectations, Chardonnay, Robertson, 2023

Our favourite wine at this estate - and one which has become more and more popular. The grapes are fermented in tanks holding small French oak blocks; and a few months on the lees gives it a little fat.
Very lightly oaked, a ripe and easy-quaffing New World Chardonnay. Cream and toast greet you on the nose. Well-textured for the price, bright and gently creamy, it makes an easy aperitif or an ideal partner to lightly spicy dishes. Now-2025
Goedverwacht translates from...

Goedverwacht

Robertson, South Africa

Goedverwacht translates from Afrikaans as good hope – or great expectations, hence the labelling.

The du Toit family farm no less than 172 hectares of vines along the bends of the Breede river near Bonnievale.

The wines are made by father Jan in collaboration with son Gawie.  Jan once firmly told me his place in the world of wine in...

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most-widely planted varieties in the world.

Arguably not the most characterful grape, hence its common ageing in oak, yet at its pinnacle in Burgundy it produces some of the greatest (and certainly most expensive) white wines in the world. Look out for unoaked Chardonnay, it can make a pleasant change, and usually goes down very well with all those people who...

Koelfontein Chardonnay, Ceres, 2021

From a block planted in 1987, and about 1/3 matured in new barrels, 2/3 second fill, crafted by John Thorne Seccombe (from Thorne and Daughter’s Wines based at Botrivier) at Gabrielskloof. Buttery aroma. Fresh and lemony with ripe melon, well-knit, with notes of oatmeal and nuts. A sort of Cape Meursault? Delivers so much  for the price. Now-2025We discovered the Koelfontein Chardonnay about five years ago by ordering a delicious bottle on the terrace of The Tulbagh hotel. I had never...

Koelfontein

Ceres

I discovered the Koelfontein Chardonnay a couple of years ago by ordering a delicious bottle on the terrace of The Tulbagh hotel.

I had never heard of it – nor indeed any wine estate in Ceres, which is much better known as a fruit growing centre. The Conradie family, the seventh generation farmers who own Koelfontein, have abundant orchards, but they also own the...

Domaine des Dieux, Chardonnay, Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, 2018

At the very top of the Hemel-en-Aarde valley, cooled by breezes and the cloud attracted to the nearby Babylonstoren peak, the Des Dieux vineyards lie in a perfect spot for Chardonnay. This has become one of our best-loved wines. The 2015 vintage won the Veritas Vertex Award for the overall champion wine in South African Veritas wine awards, and the 2018 is equally impressive.
Tinge of green in the glass. Lively aromas of cream over citrus and orchard fruit.Open and generous, with...

Domaine des Dieux

Hemel-en-Aarde, South Africa

The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, which translates as Heaven on Earth, rises prettily from just west of Hermanus.

When we first visited in 2003 the wineries, notably Hamilton Russell and Bouchard Finlayson, were all in the lower part of the valley, but more recently plantings at the top of the valley - higher, drier, with warmer...

Great choice of good-value wines in the January sales. The website is really easy to use to make up an order. Delivery, as is often the case, was within 24 hours and, as usual, was well-packed.
