'An exciting new release from the Shannon team, made with fruit from a vineyard that is only four years old. Racy, cool climate-fresh and subtly wooded, with good texture and weight and a taut, oyster shell and citrus fruit finish. Very promising. 2022-26' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 93/100

'A range of flavours are expressed from vibrant floral, saline, citrus/tangerine and white peach with a riverstone mineral edge. Each clone is vinified and matured separately to enhance its individuality, before combining in the final blend. The Wine is racked into stainless steel for 2 months to settle, no fining and a light filtration before bottling. We respect the power and elegance delivered in this beautiful expression of Chardonnay displaying the full flavour spectrum delivered by the blend of 50% clone CY 95 to the 25% clone CY 76 and 25% clone CY 548, in our Shannon “Oscar Browne” Chardonnay.' – Winemaker

Producer information The name Shannon pays homage to the owner’s ancestors who come from Irish descent. Located in the Elgin Valley within the Kogelberg Biosphere, Shannon Vineyards’ unique terroir speaks for itself. With the Peninsula Dam creating the eastern boundary of the farm, the vineyards experience a cooling blanket of mist which is such a great geographical influencer on the farm’s climate, that Shannon has included the river mist in their logo. As such, the winemaking follows a minimal intervention approach to allow the different terroirs to be expressed in the wines.
