2019 is the first vintage for the Ridge Chardonnay, which is planted on an eastern slope at 300m elevation in the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. Leaner in style next to the Vrede, which is all about buoyant, complex fruit, Ridge by comparison speaks to restraint, length and minerality. Here, we have a wine of crisp citrussy acidity, supported by 30% new French oak. Notes of pink grapefruit and pink pepper emerge with air and accent what is a lovely salty, linear, and focused Chardonnay.
