'North-facing, 18 year old block on clay-underlain sandstone. More new oak (37%) in 2018 adds plushness to creamy butterscotch & lime. Not as tightly focused as Kloof sibling though still with hallmark freshness.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'The evocatively named Fynbos Chardonnay comes from a vineyard on sandstone soils, planted in 2003. Textured, weighty and intense, with notes of wild herbs, assertive wood and pear and citrus fruit. The oak needs more time to integrate. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'The Fynbos Vineyard has well drained soils that are rich in clay with north facing slopes that result in a rich, gorgeous, fleshy, generous wine. Nuanced and multi-layered – this vineyard produces wines with more depth and weight. The wine is perfumed and mineral with notes of soft white pear, stone fruit and bright citrus. This is a sumptuous wine whose fruit profile has both depth and breadth, and great structure that allows for significant ageing potential.' – 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.
