Lindiwe Winery Chardonnay Western Cape South Africa
We believe that good things come to those who wait, so naturally we named our winery Lindiwe, meaning "has waited". A keen command of craft and bit of patience goes into each wine that we produce and our 2019 Chardonnay is no exception. Elegant, with balanced flavors of tropical fruits and citrus, this wine is an excellent pairing with poultry or cheese.
Cape Town: A maritime climate, enjoying the cooling effects of the Atlantic Ocean and stunning views of the famed Table Mountain. On the southern slopes of the Table Mountain range lies the historic Constantia Valley, the cradle of winemaking in the Cape. The valley, which falls within the Cape Peninsula district, was the site of Simon van der Stel's 17th-century wine farm and the origin of the Constantia dessert wines which became famous throughout Europe during the 18th century. Rooted in ancient soils, the vineyards climb up the east-facing slopes of the Constantiaberg where the vines benefit from the cool sea breezes blowing in from False Bay. The ward receives about 100 centimeters of rain annually making irrigation unnecessary, and has a mean February temperature of 69°F. Cooler climate favors the production of white wines in this premier ward, and the tradition of producing remarkable wines since 1685 continues. The acclaimed Cape Point vineyards, some of them less than a mile from the sea, are situated on the western edges of the Cape Peninsula.
