The two noble Burgundian cultivars of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir form the cornerstone of Haute Cabrière’s wine culture. Haute Cabrière, situated on the foot of the Franschhoek Pass, was the first winery in South Africa to produce a still wine from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir - a blend traditionally used exclusively for Méthode Cap Classique and Champagne. Chardonnay contributes elegance, and Pinot Noir intensity and richness. This blend consists of predominantly unwooded Chardonnay, rounded off with Pinot Noir. Combined in perfect proportions, resulting in a white blend with an abundance of fruit on the nose and a slight creaminess on the palate. The 2017 vintage yielded grapes of outstanding quality, resulting in a beautiful balance of fruit and acidity.

Cape Town Insider’s Review

This is one of the perennial classics and one of our go-to wines. As it’s often on restaurant wine lists we often order it for lunches year-round or early evening drinks in summer. The Haute Cabriere Chardonnay Pinot Noir is a blend usually reserved for MCC but the two grapes work together seamlessly to produce a wine that has both a gentle elegant creaminess due to the Chardonnay influence and a depth of flavour contributed by the Pinot Noir keeping the wine in perfect balance.
