Alexa
Chardonnay 2018

Alexa Chardonnay is a co-lab between auctioneer Alexa Bruun Rasmussen and Mathew Castle from Mats Vineyard. This elegant Chardonnay is rich and indulgent, with hints of citrus and lime on the nose. The acidity is well balanced and you will find notes of mineral and chalk.

Mat´s Vineyard
Chardonnay 2018

I sourced this gorgeous Chardonnay from my old mates at Marklew Family wines. It was an easy decision to put our name Mat´s Vineyard on the bottle. Rich and indulgent, with hints of citrus, lime on the nose. The acidity makes the wine very elegant with notes of mineral and chalk. A lovely butterscotch mid pallet. They say you can put it in the cellar for two years – but why would you?

De Meye
Chenin Blanc

Ok so this must be my favourite all day drinking wine. My good friend Phil, the owner of De Meye Wines, and I have spent so many hours at our local side walk café drinking bottle after bottle. Your palette just doesn’t tire of it. It´s well balanced acids and fruity taste leave you feeling refreshed.

Chenin Blanc also known as Pineau de la Loire is the most widely planted cultivar in South Africa. In the 1960’s a brand called Lieberstein (a semi sweet version of Chenin blanc) enjoyed notoriety as the single biggest selling brand in the world.” – Mathew

Marklew
Chardonnay

“When Billy Marklew gave me the news that the Chardonnay had won a double gold at the annual Veritas awards I was not surprised. It’s rich straw colour conjures up images of hedonistic times. The aroma and palette follow through on this theme.” – Mathew

Ernie Els
Big Easy White

The Big Easy Chenin is punchy and concentrated in the dry 2018 vintage. Ripe kumquat, summer melon, straw and hints of spice on the nose lead to a deep, fruity palate. It is crisp and fresh, but offers a soft and creamy mouthfeel. The fruit is ripe and easy-going, but the palate ends dry and savoury, suggesting excellent versatilty with food. The finish is long and nutty, maintaining notes of citrus throughout.
