'The Janina exudes rich honey flavours with notes of sweet apple, orange peel and lemon zest. A floral richness surprises on the palate which is carried through mid-palate with a delightful, fresh finish.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2020 vintage:
'Ludicrously inexpensive for the quality of the wine, Janina is an unwooded Chardonnay that dovetails fruit from Stellenbosch granite and Elgin shale. Pale, stony and textured, it's like a Cape Chablis, with citrus, kumquat and wet stone flavours and thirst-quenching minerality. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

'A particularly delightful example of the unoaked style. 2020 fresh & pure citrus notes plus usual flinty element. Flavourful & charming - but a bit more too: should develop. Spontaneous ferment, some in cement & polythene ‘eggs’. Mostly own fruit, 15% Elgin.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)

Producer information Since 1981 Eikendal Vineyards has belonged to the Saager family, who originate from Switzerland. Eikendal is situated in an ideal location, on the slopes of the Helderberg mountain near the Atlantic Ocean. This mountain and maritime microclimate provides ideal conditions for the vineyards on the 76 hectare Eikendal property. According to Cellarmaster, Nico Grobler ‘the magic has always been in the terroir,’ and therefore Eijendal follows a minimal intervention approach in their winemaking.
