With its great scent of citrus fruits, vanilla and white truffles, paired with floral notes, the Capensis Chardonnay impresses the senses of the connoisseur. The grapes for this incredibly elegant white wine come only from the best vineyards that the Western Cape has to offer for this grape variety - and you can taste it. On the palate, the lemon aromas are found again and are wonderfully balanced by a beautiful acidity, while the rich texture provides a grandiose mouthfeel. The Capensis Chardonnay has matured for ten months in French oak and is a beautiful accompaniment to dishes with pasta, fish or poultry. The expressive white wine is also a culinary highlight on its own.

Capensis - a tribute to the Chardonnay grape variety

Capensis - which means "from the Cape" - is a merger of Anthony Beck (Graham Beck Wines) and Barbara Banke (Jackson Family Wines). The joint venture of the two long-time friends has helped to develop South Africa into a world-class Chardonnay producer. In 2014, the two acquired the Fijnbosch vineyard in Stellenbosch to dedicate themselves to the cultivation of this noble grape variety. The passion for Chardonnay results from the firm conviction that only a few grape varieties succeed in expressing the full potential of the vineyard. In the search for the best locations, the focus was on Stellenbosch, Overberg and Robertson - the quality of each vineyard alone is decisive for the selection of the cultivated areas.

Capensis Chardonnay: a success all along the line

Winemaker Graham Weerts has succeeded in satisfying the high demands, because with Capensis Chardonnay he created a white wine matured in oak that benefits from the old, rich clay soils of the Western Capes and expressively reflects its terroir. The wine has been raved about by critics and has been honoured by both John Platter and Tim Atkin. Wine lovers will also be delighted by the complex and elegant Capensis Chardonnay with its citrus and vanilla notes, because this white wine is something very special.

Capensis is a piece of South Africa

The Capensis Chardonnay is not only a real treat for the palate, the label is also a small, noble work of art that combines four symbolic elements of South Africa. In equally filigree and sweeping lines it shows a springbok, the national animal of South Africa, the Marula tree, also called elephant tree, as well as the Protea, the national flower of the country. The texture of the label is reminiscent of a Zulu indigenous sign. In this way the Capensis Chardonnay becomes a beautiful piece of South Africa in every respect, combining the tradition of the country with the unique character of the winelands.
