A classic chardonnay from Buitenverachting in Constantia whose famed vineyards were first planted in 1796 when Bordeaux was still a swamp – who says Cape Wine is new world! Like other wines from this estate, these wines are long lived and continue to evolve over time. Platter’s say ‘seriously elegant, refined, complex, concentrated, structured and harmonious with a long rich finish.’ I can vouch for all that. Incidentally, the movie Blood Diamond was shot at this beautiful vineyard.
