Simonsvlei Premier Selection Chardonnay is well balanced, characterised by bright, zesty fruit with a gentle hint of oak. Vibrant citrus aromas lead into a round, smooth and supple palate with flavours of soft, ripe peach and lime zest. The finish is clean with a hint of minerality. Just lovely with fresh fish.

Simonsvlei’s name originates from the South African wine industry’s founder, Simon van der Stel, and the surrounding wetland landscape, the “vlei” Founded in 1945, the team have pioneered viticultural and winemaking practices as well as promoting the industry as a whole. From the cellar, you can see the stunning Paarl Mountain - the second largest granite outcrop in the world. A Mediterranean climate of cold, wet winters and hot, dry summers produces grapes of intense flavour and high sugar levels. Simonsvlei employ 36 farms and have over 1,000 hectares under vine. All of the vineyards are trained as “bush” vines with no irrigation. They are planted on the coolest slopes in the Stellenbosch and Durbanville areas.

The harvest of Chardonnay grapes occurs in mid-February. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes are destemmed and crushed before being cold-soaked for 12 – 18 hours. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks with wooden staves inside to give body and structure whilst avoiding over-extraction of oak characteristics.
