Eikendal Infused by Earth Chardonnay 2017

This wine’s vineyard comprises unirrigated bush vines that grow in decomposed granite and clay. It sits atop a hill overlooking False Bay that is often buffeted by ocean winds. All these aspects make for a harsh environment in which the vines really come into their own.

Preserving its character was a priority during harvest and vinification. The wine spent 16 months maturing and it too will continue to improve over the next decade.
