Paul Clüver The Wagon Trail Chardonnay 2022

100% Chardonnay
Wine of Origin Elgin

  • Planted in 1987, this is the oldest Chardonnay vineyard in Elgin, as well as one of the oldest vineyards in Elgin.
  • It is the first vineyard from Elgin to be included in the Old Vine Project.
  • This wine is a beautiful expression of cool climate Chardonnay.
  • The growing conditions after ample winter rainfall were very good, with cool night temperatures and moderate days. Ripening was very even, with crisp acidity, freshness and concentration.
  • Minimal interference was applied in the winemaking and no settling agents or yeast were added.

Tasting Notes: This wine is a reflection of this unique site, with purity, poise, minerality and citrus floral notes. The palate is bursting with tangerine, hints of subtle oak, crisp acidity and great complexity.

Ready to drink now and until 2033.

Winemaker: Andries Burger
