Notes

100% Chardonnay

Inspired by Nature and meticulously crafted by cellarmaster Jean-Claude Martin, each single-vineyard wine in this range is the ultimate expression of its terroir and indeed an exquisite and multifaceted artwork in its own right.

Tasting notes:
'JC Martin's top Chardonnay is now established as one of the best examples of the variety in South Africa. Tight, chiselled, nuanced and made to age, it's stony, focused and layered, with full malolactic and one-third new oak adding nuances rather than dominating the palate. Long and refined. 2020-28.' – Tim Atkin SA Report 2019, 96/100

'The exclusive Art of Creation Chardonnay is even more complex, gaining its intensity from a specific site within a single vineyard. Elegantly refined in its aromas of fresh lime and delicate quince, the wine is also gorgeously opulent with whiffs of warm butterscotch and almond. On the creamy, exquisitely balanced palate layer upon layer of flavour unfold: rich vanilla pod, peach kernel, vivacious pear, a hint of white pepper … all enlivened by bracing minerality.' – Jean-Claude Martin, Wine Maker
