Boutinot South Africa is driven by our passion for discovery and desire to capture the real essence of South Africa in...



The Chardonnay grapes for this unoaked wine are sourced from long established vineyards on the Wellington/Swartland borders of the Western Cape. This area receives little rainfall and the soil is a mixture of alluvial riverbed stones, decomposed granite and shale. The vines are low-trellised and the grapes are picked by hand in the early hours of the morning to retain their freshness. On arrival to the winery, grapes are chilled and the juice settled in tank prior to fermentation. A proportion of the grapes are full bunch pressed, the rest are destemmed and cold fermented. We keep the wine on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks for as long as possible prior to bottling.

Tasting notes

Fresh, tangy stone fruit and pineapple on the nose. The fruit follows through on the palate with a ripe, juicy mouthfeel and crisp acidity . There is breadth and character in this wine that follows through to a refreshing finish.

Food match

Grilled white fish and seafood, roast chicken, pasta with cream and mushrooms.
