Cape Chamonix, Franschhoek, South Africa

This estate ranks as one of the top ten estates in South Africa right now. Though inspired winemaker Gottfried Mocke left in 2016 (2015 being his last vintage), the wines continue to show superbly. The estate owns vineyards above the town running from 380 to 600 metres in altitude which lends some freshness in the Cape heat.
