'The 2019 Chardonnay Highlands, matured in 31% French oak on the lees for 11 months, has a well-defined bouquet of citrus fruit infused with almond and flecks of white chocolate. The palate is well balanced, displaying orange zest and apricot notes on the entry, a fine bead of acidity and quite a concentrated, tropical-tinged finish that actually reminds me of some of the 2019 white Burgundy wines that I tasted. Excellent. Drink 2022-2030.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92/100 (Apr 2021)

'Stylish and Burgundian with bright citrus, white stone fruit, oyster shell minerality and a hint of brioche. The purity of fruit combined with well-judged oak and bright fresh acidity result in a wine that is layered and complex with a lingering finish.' – Winemaker

Producer information In 1997, Andrew Gunn purchased the beautiful Geelbeksvlei farm located 420 meters above sea-level, overlooking the Elgin Valley. This apple and pear farm was no longer proving to be profitable, and so with the advantageous location of the farm, Andrew decided to plant vines and pursue winemaking. Its high altitude and close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean results in a cool mesoclimate which has a moderating influence and results in consistent quality.
