The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard in the cool Elgin region. The vineyard is only one hectare and was planted on Table Mountain Shale soil. Migliarina Wines is the only producer receiving grapes from this vineyard and only the best portion is selected for the Single Vineyard Chardonnay.

Tasting notes:
'2,500 bottles produced. Barrel fermented, 35% new oak from France, Romania, Hungary and USA. A beautifully sleek fine Chardonnay with great breadth and depth and superb complexity. Nose is multi-dimensional with creamy vanilla pod, lemon biscuits, creme brûlée and toffee able with 14 months in oak with no malo. Expert oak interaction, beautiful acidity and chalky minerality that doesn’t seek to be bludgeoned to death with oak. This Elgin fruit screams cooler climate, minerality, subtlety with no fining and no filtration. Lovely lime cordial tension, linearity and a long, harmonious, classical finish. A supremely distinguished effort.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 94/100

'Single Vineyard Chardonnay (this vineyard has sadly been ripped out), this wine is more Burgundian and oxidative in style. Concentrated flavours but not over wooded. Needs food.' – Carsten Migliarina
