Arriving with us mid-April"This full-bodied, rich Chardonnay, offers a powerful citrus, giving it great elegance, with flintstone on the nose, mineral undertones and good balance, giving the wine a wonderful lingering finish." Brad Paton, Winemaker
On any trip to South Africa, Buitenverwachting is almost always our first port of call on landing. It is the most wonderful place to sit and taste outside, and enjoy some fine food, with the ever-genial owner and host Lars Maack close by, aided by the brilliant Brad Paton, their highly talented winemaker. Buitenverwachting is a historic Constantia estate, with the name meaning “Beyond Expectation." It originally formed part of the Constantia estate which was founded by Simon Van De Stel, the first Governor of the New Dutch Colony of The Cape, who we know planted vines on.
