Hailing from the cool climate of Elgin, just a stone's throw from Cape Town, the Palmiet Chardonnay reminds us of the cult Jura producers who are currently taking the wine world by storm. From the first taste, it had an almost Ganevat-esc profile of incredible salinity, smoked almonds, roasted nuts plus ripe yellow apple and quince. A change in style from Meyer's previously Burgundian approach, this nod to the natural winemakers of Jura is a masterpiece.

Johan Meyer a rising star of the new South African wine scene makes his JH Signature Wines from selected grapes in the cooler regions of Elgin for the Pinot and Walker Bay for the Chardonnay. “I fell in love with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay while working in Santa Barbara. There’s great potential for both grapes in South Africa, and, as they are less widely planted, you have a chance to put your own stamp on the wines if you do a good job,” he says. Johan and our very own Ben Henshaw also collaborate on Mother Rock Wines, so needless to say, we're big fans of his work!
