The magnificent setting that is Cavalli

This totally delicious Chardonnay has just been released by Cavalli from their 2023 harvest.

Lightly wooded after 10 months in oak barrels, it has a superbly fresh nose with hints of pineapple on the nose and beguiling vanilla on the palate. Superb with food–think roast pork, fish or chicken. We had it with roast chicken and nachos with cheese and it was fabulous. Available at the cellar for R230.


The wine was made by Malie McGregor and released by new winemaker, the brilliant Rianie Strydom. Rianie is one of only four female winemakers in the prestigious CWG–Cape Winemakers Guild–the highest invitation-only group of the very best winemakers in South Africa–watch this space!.
