FYM | Chardonnay '17

As we progressed on our 25-year wine journey it became evident, fairly early on, that we'd found ourselves in Chardonnay quicksand.

There simply was no escaping the range of products this phenomenal varietal held the key to.

Capable of producing magnificent Cap Classiques, mind-blowing oaked and un-oaked still wines and next-level sticky wines. Chardonnay is undoubtedly the queen of the white wine stage.

In our 25-years we've unpacked and repacked our relationship with our Chardonnay many times.

We've come to understand and adore our Chardonnay vineyards and clones in much the same way that people come to know and love their children.

Through our unpacking of this cultivar we discovered a now extinct South African Chardonnay Clone CY18 alive and thriving on Môreson. This small parcel (0.28Ha) of vines, located alongside our private airstrip, was our very first foray into single-vineyard site-specific wines.

It's a taste celebration of both our beginning and our journey.

# ONE|HAPPY|VALLEY

Our family have been custodians of Môreson for the past 35 years. Over the course of three generations this 30Ha farm, located at the end of the aptly named Happy Valley Road, has been transformed into sanctuary it is today.

Pioneers of the Wine of Origin Franschhoek (#WoOF) movement, Môreson wines have been at the forefront of putting the Franschhoek Wine Appellation on the map, both in the local South African market and abroad.

As a wine grower | producer we pride ourselves in our continued investment in the quality of our products.

“We live and die by our credo: Quality. Soul. Integrity.”
