A restrained, mineral style focussed on elegance with a white fruit character, a touch of oatmeal and delicate oak spice notes.
Kershaw Elgin Chardonnay makes use of Dijon clones, namely 76, 95 & 96 (developed at the University of Burgundy in Dijon, France), offering a restrained, mineral style focused on elegance with a white, fruit character, some oatmeal, and complexity gained from percipient wood. Each Clonal Selection wine is made from 3-4 small parcels on terroir-specific plots with particular soils types. Each Deconstructed wine is made from clone specific, soil specific site in Elgin.
Not many Master of Wine's make wine, But Richard Kershaw MW's are highly sought after. Sheffield born Kershaw has been making wine in the cape since 1999 and has been producing tiny quantities under his own label since 2012, specialising in the cool-climate wines of Elgin. Being one of the few MW’s to make his own wine, he uses his vast knowledge to craft stunning wines that are easily a match for some of the world’s very best wines.
