‘Elandskloof vines. Delicate but full limey, toasty aromas on 2020; soft texture, sweetly ripe, rich fruit cut with firm acidity. These chards whole bunch pressed, spontaneous onset to ferment; about a quarter new oak, tiny portions in clay pot.’ – Platter’s Guide, 4.5* (91/100)

The Kaaimansgat or Crocodile’s Lair vineyard is hidden away in the Elandskloof Valley behind the village of Villiersdorp, just 80km from Hermanus. A beautiful, blind valley nestled amongst majestic mountains. Bouchard Finlayson has been linked directly to this vineyard for thirty vintages. It is located 700m above sea level, ripens a month later than other Cape Chardonnays and benefits enormously from cool autumn temperatures. The name of the vineyard is derived from the mispronounced name of the original settler – a Dutchman Kwaaiman.
