Origin

Franschhoek is a near neighbour of Stellenbosch and as highly regarded for its defined and refined wines. Cool breezes in the hot summer months moderate growing conditions to produce ripe but balanced red and white wines. Chamonix is now one of Platter’s (“South Africa’s Parker”) regular 5 star award winners.

Producer

Cape Chamonix Wine Farm has a long history, once forming part of the historic Huguenot Estate which dates back to 1688. Now under the expertise of German-born entrepreneur Chris Hellinger, over the past two decades Chamonix has stormed onto the world stage as a well respected winery in its own right. The farm employs a number of sustainable practices, including the use of organic compost and mulch which is ploughed into the soil.

Grape Variety

100% Chardonnay.

Grapes are hand-picked and bunch-sorted in the last week of February and first week of March. The wine is fermented at controlled temperatures for a 3 week period in French Allier barriques, kept on the lees with further, malolatic fermentation and finally aged for 14 months in the barrel prior to the final blending of the finest batches.

Food Match

A great match for dishes such as grilled or seared scallops, or a simple roast chicken. Can also be delicious with dishes showcasing wild mushrooms or white truffles or anything with a nutty note.
