Seven Springs Vineyards
Golden straw colored Chardonnay, with just a gentle touch of oak.
The philosophy of Seven Springs is to aim for balance and staying true to the nature of our vineyards. The Overberg has such rich soils that it delivers a unique type of fruit, which does not need much to show its beauty and elegance.
A delicate nose of honeyed fruit, crisp citrus and subtle oak. Typical of our ocean influenced cooler climate there is minerality throughout.
Easily enjoyed on its own, but beautifully paired with canapés, mild cheeses, mild curries, rich fish or poultry dishes and my favorite…pork belly. Serve chilled at 14-16°C
The acid is bright and fresh, yet not acidic. The flavors are that of candied lemon, velvety crème Brule with a unique salinity found in the wine.

Cape Town Insiders’ Review Of The Wine
We love chardonnays from the Hemel and Aarde region, and 7Spring’s Oaked Chardonnay was no exception. It’s surprisingly light and easy to drink for a wooded Chardonnay so it makes for a perfect summer evening wine. This wine is ideal to serve before a dinner party (with canapes) or a cheese platter. We were feeling very generous and shared the bottle with friends before dinner.
