Cousins Jeff and Simon Grier started the family-owned Villiera Wines outside Stellenbosch in 1983 and embarked on an extensive replanting of classic and local varietals. Cathy Brewer (née Grier) later joined the family team to head up the sales, marketing and export divisions. The introduction of hi-tech cellar facilities for the production of still wines as well as Méthode Cap Classique combined with a unique wine business philosophy has seen Villiera developing into one of the largest private wineries in the country. Award-winning winemaker Jeff Grier crafts a range of wines characterized by a strong reflection of Villiera’s unique terroir and the retention of the distinct aromas and flavours of the different varietals.
Cultivars: 60% Chardonnay; 40% Pinot Noir
Rich, creamy, yeasty nose, with a full, ripe toasty flavour on the middle palate developing finesse and complexity on the aftertaste.
