Callender Peak ‘Mountain Vineyards’ Chardonnay 2021


The vineyards are in the high altitude Agterwitzenberg Valley, in apple and pear country. Original plantings were made back in the early 80s from illegal vine material smuggled into the country. Previous buyers of the fruit have been David Finlayson (then of Glen Carlou), Kevin Grant (Ataraxia), Johan Kruger (Sterhuis), Clive Torr, and Carl van der Merwe (De Morgenson).

There has been continual improvements and alterations to the vineyards over the years, and some rows are still planted on their own rootstock, a hugely rare occurrence in South Africa. Current winemaker, Donovan Rall maintains that “This is some of the best fruit I have worked with in South Africa“.

Only 1200 bottles produced.

The Callender Peak wines offer a purity and freshness that only comes with cool climate viticulture. Expertly handled in the winery by Donovan, he has managed to express real character in the wines with good weight and intensity. These are unique wines of real class. Due to its elevation and the population of skilled agricultural businesses, we believe Ceres Plateau is a WO that will become more and more important in the South African scene as time goes on.
