More occluded by winemaking tricks on the nose. Richer and sweeter than the regular bottling but I'm not sure it's better. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2017)

Aromas of coffee, burned caramel, roasted nuts and white peach. Palate is framed by youthful acidity, with harmonious fruit and oak balance. The wine finishes with subtle toasted almond and baked bread aftertaste flavours.Winemaker's notes(Aug 2017)

The 2015 Anvil Chardonnay comprises of six 300-liter barrels this year. The nose is just very intoxicating with gorgeous praline and shaved almond tinged tropical fruit that manages to maintain excellent delineation and focus. The palate is very well balanced with beautifully integrated oak, veins of orange zest and mandarin that segue into light walnut notes towards the poised, but long finish.

Haskell Vineyards

The Haskell Vineyards estate is in the Helderberg, the revered Stellenbosch sub-region which contains many of South Africa's greatest wine names, the 23 hectares of vineyards neighbouring Rust en Vrede, Stellenzicht and Bilton.

The estate was originally names Dombeya after a wild native pear tree that gows in the area, and this is the name used for the 'Dombeya' range, which is designed to represent great value at its price point and to offer an insight into the capacity of the estate to make stylish wines of individuality.

The founding winemaker, Rianie Strydom, has now handed over the baton to Rudolph Steenkamp, who joined the estate as assistant winemaker and vineyard manager in June 2018. Rudolph has worked for four vintages at Groot Constantia, as well as in France.

Awarded an elite five star rating in the upcoming 2010 John Platter Guide, Haskell also made history by becoming the first South African winery to win Best Red Wine and Best Wine in Show at the prestigious 2009 Tri-Nations Challenge, a yearly competition between the finest wines of Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
