Tasting notes on the 2020 vintage:
'Complex & regal 2020, beautiful gold glint & inviting baked applecake aroma, sprinkle of cinnamon. Expressive & intense yet restrained, no excess, great depth & length. Ceres Plateau grapes, 6 months in 33% new oak, lees regularly stirred. Follows fine 2019 (5 stars, 95 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'This innovative Chardonnay from the elevated, cool climate Ceres Plateau is always one of the highlights of the De Grendel range. Bright, ethereal and focused, with saline freshness, subtle oak, notes of citrus and oatmeal and a long, tapering finish. Drink 2021-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 93/100

'Fermented and matured for five months in 225-litre barrels, one-third new. A hint of reduction before peach, citrurs and herbs on the nose while the palate shows pure fruit and zippy acidity before a long, dry finish. Plenty of depth but equally wonderfully poised.' – Winemag Prescient Chardonnay Report 2021, Top 10 (93/100)

Producer information The De Grendel farm, situated on the slopes of Tygerberg Hill, dates back to 1720 with the first owner, businessman Claas Meyboom. In 1891, Dawie Graaff, the mayor of Cape Town, bought De Grendel farm, and it has been in the Graaff family ever since. The first De Grendel wines were made in 2003 from the Graham Beck cellars, and in 2004, De Grendel opened their own wine cellars. With their 330 hectares of land, the Graaff family has a respect for nature and the environment. De Grendel is a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative (BWI), is a carbon-negative farm, uses solar energy and follows water wise principles. In addition to wine farming the estate also does dairy farming.
