JUNE WINE CLUB PROMOTION. WAS R175. NOW R140.Your same favourite wine with a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Chardonnay (previously Steenberg Sphynx Chardonnay) featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.
Our 2021 Chardonnay shows upfront and intense aromas of citrus marmalade, fresh Golden Delicious apple, butterscotch and shortbread on the nose. Subtle vanilla oak spice is carried through from the nose to the palate where it meets flavours of quince and candied apple. It is complemented by a bright, clean structure and long finish, which in turn is tempered by a lifting acidity and chalky minerality.
The wine is ready to enjoy now but will reward patience and age gracefully for the next 2- 5 years.

Returning to this wine years after bottling has proven what a great vintage 2017 was for reds in Constantia. On appearance, this wine is ruby red with a typically clear yet bright hue. The bouquet displays primary notes of fresh strawberry coulis, dried cranberry along with some truffle, leather and red cherry. The wine displays the natural tart acidity and grippy tannins of Nebbiolo on the palate, although with a well-rounded and fuller mouth-feel than can sometimes be the case with this varietal. Flavours of sour cherry, raspberry and tobacco leaf linger to give the wine brilliant length and persistence.
The wine shows beautiful fruit and floral characters in youth, but will develop well over the next 7 to 10 years and will greatly reward those who resist it’s youthful charm.
