David Finlayson Camino Africana Shale Terraces Chardonnay 2022

David Finlayson Camino Africana Shale Terraces Chardonnay 2022
David Finlayson Camino Africana Shale Terraces Chardonnay 2022

This vineyard is 21 years old and was planted by David Finlayson on terraces he cut into the steepest hillside on the Edgebaston Vineyard in Stellenbosch.

The trellis system is low to the ground and uncommon in South Africa as it produces very low yields and small bunches. The vineyard is hand farmed and processed only with organic principles in mind. It has been a 21-year project that is now beginning to deliver the results.

This wine signifies something truly special to me as a winemaker and is part of my journey in life and wine in South Africa, hence the name, Camino Africana, “The African Way”.
