Overlooking the picturesque Banghoek Valley in Stellenbosch, the Bartinney Estate was established in 1920 by a retired director of the famed Harrod's Department store in London. It changed hand several times; the grandfather of the current proprietor, Michael Jordaan, owned it from 1954 through the early 1990s. Jordaan bought the estate in 2006 and immediately got to work converting the property into a winery and planting vineyards. Together with veteran winemaker Ronell Wiid, who joined him in 2011, he is making opulent yet elegant Cabernets and Chardonnays that reflect the unique terroir of the valley. A commitment to sustainable farming practices not only helps to maintain the land's biodiversity, but it results in a more purer expression of these grape varietals.
91 points, Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Chardonnay comes from three hectares of vine, although two more are planted. It is matured in around one-third new oak, with minimal toasting on the barrels and no malo. It has a well-defined, quite tightly controlled and linear nose with touches of white peach and fresh pear. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity that is nicely balanced with a brush of wild honey and brioche towards the finish. This is a well made and quite delicious Stellenbosch Chardonnay."
