An aromatic explosion of lime, lemon, orange blossom, nectarine and a nuance of fresh crème brûlée. A full palate of citrus and rich minerals drives a saline finish, light on its feet yet dense and long.

The intent of Capensis Silene Chardonnay is to highlight the nuances and profound flavor profile that can be found in the Stellenbosch winegrowing region. A blend of two mountain vineyards, the estate Fijnbosch vineyard and the neighbouring Nooitgedacht vineyard

Capensis, meaning “from the Cape,” is a leader in bringing South Africa to the forefront as a world-class Chardonnay producer. The commitment to Chardonnay comes from the belief that the truly great vineyard sites around the world are revealed by only a few noble grape varieties. South Africa’s Western Cape, the home of Capensis, can be called both the oldest wine region of the New World and the newest wine region of the Old World. Capensis skilfully combines these two facets — the oldest and the newest — of Western Cape winemaking. It embodies the unparalleled quality that comes from old, gnarled vines planted in some of the oldest soils in the world, and it represents the young energy of a new generation of winemakers determined to make world-class wines with state-of-the-art techniques.
