Buitenverwachting Chardonnay 2015

Buiten Blanc

A classic chardonnay from Buitenverachting in Constantia whose famed vineyards were first planted in 1796 when Bordeaux was still a swamp - who says Cape Wine is new world! Like other wines from this estate, these wines are long lived and continue to evolve over time. Platter's say 'seriously elegant, refined,  complex, concentrated, structured and harmonious with a long rich finish.' I can vouch for all that. Incidentally, the movie Blood Diamond was shot at this beautiful vineyard.

About Kinnegar

Kinnegar Wines was born almost by accident and been growing organically since.

In 1998, I was in the midde of a two year diploma course with the London Wine & Spirits Trust when an opportunity came up to visit South Africa's Western Cape. Naturally, I was keen to avail of the opportunity to learn more about viticulture and winemaking in South Africa.

We had an excellent guide who brought us to a number of the Cape's leading estates including Thelema and De Trafford where we had in depth vineyard and cellars tours. At the end of the day, I wanted to take back some of the wonderful wines we had tasted for our own use. It was not possible to take two or three cases of wine with us on our flight and shipping such a small quantity was more than the cost of wines. So I had the mad idea of shipping a pallet! Clearly, I had to start selling these wines and so began Kinnegar Wines. Ashford Castle took many of the wines and continue to list them and newer arrivals ever since.
