Notes

'Consistently one of my favourite Cape Chardonnays, this has helped to push Elgin to the top of the cool climate regional league table in South Africa. Floral, toasty and savoury, with refined oak, racy acidity, some citrus and baking spices and impressive weight. Seven Flags ages well, too. 2018-24'. – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2017, 95/100

Platinum Award - 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards

Pioneering in spirit, no family has been more influential than the Cluvers in establishing Elgin as one of SA’s finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir regions. The Paul Cluver Seven Flags Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the benchmarks that all other wines from this region are measured against. With Andries Burger’s passion, and the assistance of Burgundian consultant Martin Prieur, these flagship wines have seen a steady and marked refinement over the last few years.

The 2016 Paul Cluver Seven Flags Chardonnay has recently been named ‘Best in Show’ at the 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards. Planted in the late 1980s, it is from the oldest Chardonnay vineyards in Elgin and has been at the forefront of SA’s recent Chardonnay revolution.

From the oldest Chardonnay on the farm, and some of the oldest vineyards in South Africa at 27 years, this contains half of the vineyard that produces the famous CWG Wagon Trail Chardonnay.

'Refined and elegant, the nose shows complex notes of white peach, lemon and dill. Full and intense with a core of rich fruit, smoke and vanilla, the finish is delicious with mineral tautness. Alc.: 13.5%.' – Decanter World Wine Awards 2017, Best Chardonnay in Show, 95/100
