The Press Association wrote, "South African winemakers are producing an abundance of world-class wines". Excelsior Estate has been doing just that for 150 years, since its foundation in Robertson in 1870. Today it’s still owned by the De Wet family, with father and son duo – Freddie and Peter – running the show. Their philosophy is that great wine is made in the vineyard, so much care is given to the vines. Their Heritage Reserve range uses their finest grapes from the lowest yielding vines on the region’s premium limestone soils, all to ensure rich flavour. Only yeast from the grape skins are used, which produces a wine with richer flavours. Enjoy this creamy, unoaked Chardonnay, with its citrus peach notes, with white meats or salmon.
