The Landscape Series is a range of five wines that show the best of Gabriëlskloof’s vineyards and winemaking and aims to be a sincere representation of the elements that make them unique. We wanted the labels to reflect this approach and commissioned Niël Jonker – well-known for his landscape panels painted on location – to capture the spirit of our Overberg landscapes.
South Africa is the only New World country that has significant plantings of old-vine Chenin Blanc. With Elodie, we want to show what we can do with this national treasure.
Angela Lloyd's Tasting note in Platter 2020:
"Chenin redolent of Swartland old vines. 2018 generous aromatic breadth, mouthfilling ripe flavours - baked pear, whiff of honey; added nuance via natural ferment, larger seasoned oak. Tense, mineral core carries deep flavours to great length. 2017 (4.5 stars, 93 pts) included Durbanville fruit. 95pts"
