The Vrede en Lust Marguerite Chardonnay is a tribute to Marguerite de Savoy, the eldest daughter...
The Vrede en Lust Marguerite Chardonnay is a tribute to Marguerite de Savoy, the eldest daughter of the first estate owner, who was considered to be particularly strong in character and extravagant. The same goes for the white wine, which is aged French oak for eleven months, and is balanced with powerful aromas of citrus fruit and roasted almonds. At the same time nuances of butterscotch, paired with almond and pear aromas, nestle around the palate and give the wine a particularly creamy mouthfeel. The elegant Vrede en Lust Marguerite Chardonnay can be combined especially well with fish, poultry and salads.

Vrede en Lust – run by the Family Buys

Since 1996, the family Buys runs Vrede en Lust with a constantly growing success. The Buys are the 17th owner of the estate already, but it was them that have given the winery the required consistency and quality that have made it one of the most beautiful and interesting ones in the whole of South Africa. After an extensive renovation and conversion, Vrede en Lust can finally realise its full potential and has been doing exactly that for some years now. Susan Erasmus, one of the few female winemakers in South Africa, has managed for eleven years that Vrede en Lust is now a permanent part of the elite of South African wineries due to her perfectionist approach. Karlin Nel who has been Susan Erasmus’ assistant took over the position as head winemaker in the youthful age of 26 years in autumn 2017.

Breathtaking Location and emotional Wine

Vrede en Lust benefits from its breathtaking location in the Franschhoek valley. In the middle of the mighty mountains and the fantastic view along the valley, there are ideal conditions here for the cultivation of true premium wine. Every single time, the visitors of the estate are impressed by the sight which does constitute a part of the charm of Vrede en Lust. Additionally, many of the wines tell their own, little story, such as the Jess Rosé which is a grand, fresh rosé wine. It is named after the youngest daughter of the owner, Jessica Lee.
