Crafting Excellence

Eikendal Vineyards has long been synonymous with excellence in winemaking, particularly in the realm of Chardonnay. The Janina Chardonnay 2023 embodies this commitment with a

captivating flavour profile that includes notes of green apple, lemon, and fresh pineapple. Its exquisite nuances of honey and orange blossoms culminate in a delightful, fresh, flinty, and lingering finish - a wine that captures the essence of Eikendal's pursuit of varietal excellence.

Winemaker Aldert Nieuwoudt, who assumed his role at Eikendal Vineyards in August 2022,

brings a wealth of experience and dedication to every bottle. His commitment to the craft is

palpable in the exceptional quality of the Janina Chardonnay 2023.

A Taste of Summer

In addition to the Janina Chardonnay, Eikendal Vineyards unveils the Sauvignon Blanc 2023, a wine that encapsulates the essence of summer with its fresh and crisp characteristics. Sourced from an exclusive vineyard block in the Elgin Valley, these grapes thrive at an altitude of 350 meters above sea level, harnessing Elgin's cool climate and unique terroir to produce an unparalleled Sauvignon Blanc. The Sauvignon Blanc 2023 stands as a testament to Eikendal's commitment to precision winemaking. It offers a refreshing and invigorating experience, making it the ideal choice for those seeking a crisp and vibrant wine to elevate their summer moments. Enhance your culinary experience with its freshness by pairing it with Goat's Cheese, Oysters, Artichoke, or Pesto Gnocchi.
