Steenberg Chardonnay

New look Steenberg Chardonnay expresses autumnal splendour

Golden delicious apples, citrus and quince – these are the flavours of autumn you can expect from a glass of Steenberg Chardonnay.

Joining the Steenberg Classic line-up in a refined new look, the 2021 Chardonnay expresses elegance and sophistication both in taste and appearance. Giving prominence to the iconic swan that signifies the quality and esteem upheld by Steenberg Vineyards since 1682, the stylish new label has a timeless, yet contemporary aesthetic.

Crafted by Cellarmaster Elunda Basson, Steenberg Chardonnay 2021 has intense aromas of citrus marmalade, fresh golden delicious apples, butterscotch and shortbread. Hints of subtle vanilla and oak spice imparted during six months’ maturation in French oak barrels follows through onto the palate where they meld with quince and candied apples. Bracing acidity and chalky minerality tempers the bight, clean structure and long, lingering finish.

As the cooler weather starts wafting in, Steenberg Chardonnay drinks beautifully on its own, but is just as appealing as a food wine. Steenberg Executive Chef of Tryn and Bistro Sixteen82 fame recommends a rich pork belly roast with a Chardonnay & mustard sauce and apple slaw on the side as a perfect autumn pairing for this richly layered wine.

Steenberg Chardonnay 2021 is available countrywide and sells for R175 at the cellar door. For online purchases visit
