In 2012, UK-born winemaker, trained chef and Master of Wine Richard Kershaw chose Elgin Valley in which to establish a boutique winery – Richard Kershaw Wines. Focus is on varieties which perform well in this cool climate: chardonnay, pinot noir and syrah. From the first Clonal Selections, the portfolio has grown to more than twenty wines across four ranges, the more recent GPS showing unusual sites beyond Elgin, Deconstructed focusing on site, soil and clone, and Smuggler’s Boot offering an easier-drinking style. If not in the vineyard or cellar, Richard can be found judging on wine shows, lecturing Wine & Spirit Trust students, mentoring MW students and, in 2022, being inducted in to the esteemed Cape Winemakers Guild.
Kershaw Clonal Selection Chardonnay 2019
Restrained, mineral style focussed on elegance with a white fruit character, some oatmeal and some complexity gained from percipient applied wood.
