Marguerite Chardonnay



Sourced from a selection of Chardonnay blocks on Casey’s Ridge in Elgin – only limited quantities of this wine is produced. The grapes are either whole-bunch pressed or berry sorted after which the juice is barrel fermented. The result is a vivid, complex, fruit-forward Chardonnay with gentle oak intervention on the elegant palate.

Named after the first owner of Vrede en Lust’s eldest daughter, Marguerite de Savoye, this wine is just as flamboyant as she was.

Tasting Notes

Fresh citrus, lemongrass, and hits of floral notes are found on the nose. Typical mineral and cooler climate aromas with a classical lingering aftertaste. The ideal illustration of the smokiness from the wood, and fruitiness in the wine coming together to create a crisp, yet smooth and rounded experience on the palate.
