Region: Hemel-en-Aarde Valley
Storm Wines strives to steer the purest characteristics of each vineyard site towards bottle and cork. Small production, careful viticulture, minimal intervention in the cellar and a constant nod to the Old World present the wines with distinctive personality and character.
Vrede Chardonnay – or Peace Chardonnay – hails from a northeast-facing slope in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley with low-vigour, stony, clay-rich Bokkeveld shale soil.
An elegant example with crisp fruit, good length and minerality – these are characteristic of the site’s low-vigour, stony, clay-rich soil.
A delicious pairing with butternut ravioli.
