This Single Vineyard wine is created from a block of Chardonnay planted on the Franschhoek property in 1983 by proprietor Achim von Arnim. Only 2138 bottles were produced, of which 60 bottles are available in Hong Kong.
Clay amphorae were used in addition to French Oak barrels for the maturation, resulting in an elegant wine with subtle oak characters. The two components were matured separately for 12 months, whereafter blending took place. True to Chardonnay, expect notes of citrus, followed by subtle notes of honey and butterscotch.
