The Chardonnay & Pinot Noir Festival – which takes place at the Killarney Country Club's Crystal Room on Thursday, May 10, from 18h00 – includes in its impressive line-up many high-end, award-winning Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs that are not shown at other festivals because they are often too expensive and with too small a production.

Winemaker Koen Roose of Spioenkop
Also attending Gauteng’s only showcase of these noble varieties is winemaker Koen Roose of Spioenkop, the acclaimed and award-winning wine estate in Elgin, who will be presenting the Spioenkop Pinot Noir 2015. Richard Kershaw will be showing his Kershaw Clonal Selection Chardonnay and Kershaw Clonal Selection Pinot Noir.

Other highlights include Chardonnay Du Monde Silver Award winner the Rietvallei JMB Chardonnay 2017; the Creation Art of Pinot Noir 2016 which was awarded 5 stars by Platter and the Eikendal Chardonnay 2016 and Hartenberg The Eleanor Chardonnay 2015, both named in the Winemag Chardonnay Report Top 10. Other premium wines to be tasted at the festival include The Drift There are Still Mysteries Pinot Noir 2016; Oak Valley Groenlandberg Chardonnay 2016; the Lismore Chardonnay 2015 and the Jordan Nine Yards Chardonnay 2015.

There are a host of new South African wines on show this year including the Domaine Des Dieux Josephine Pinot Noir 2013; Elemental Bob Cosmic Hand Pinot Noir 2015; Lismore Pinot Noir 2017; MVH Signature Pinot Noir 2016; Paul Wallace Reflection Chardonnay 2017 and Raised By Wolves Limestone Pinot Noir 2015.

Tickets cost R250 per person and this includes a tasting glass as well as an array of light snacks chosen to complement the styles of wine being sampled. In addition to tastings, the wines will also be on sale on the night, at less than retail prices. Some are no longer available on the general marketplace.

Participation in the festival is by invitation only with organiser, Corlien Morris of Wine Menu, choosing what wines will be available for tasting to ensure that only the best is shown at the festival which has been sold-out since it first started in Gauteng seven years ago.

Says Morris: “This is a targeted wine experience that focuses on the flavours and nuances of these two famous Burgundian varietals.”

Only 300 tickets are available for the 2018 Chardonnay & Pinot Noir Festival so booking is essential and can be purchased via www.webtickets.co.za or from Wine Menu in the BluBird Shopping Centre, Illovo.

Just announced as showcasing his wine is Hannes Storm, former winemaker at Hamilton Russell, who started making his own super premium small production Hemel en Aarde focussed wines. He will present his Vrede Pinot Noir 2016 (Hemel en Aarde Valley), Ignis Pinot Noir 2016 (Upper Hemel en Aarde); Ridge Pinot Noir 2016 (Hemel en Aarde Ridge) and Vrede Chardonnay 2017 (Valley).

MORE ABOUT WINE MENU

It is owned by Corlien Morris who was born and bred in the Cape Winelands and has been involved in the local wine industry for more than 20 years. In May 2013 she opened her first specialist wine store in the Blu Bird Centre, Illovo, with the aim of showcasing South Africa’s best wines. With her roots in the Cape and strong relationships with the winemakers and farm owners, she is able to source not only the best, but the often-lesser known wines from boutique producers. Wine Menu features wines that are not available anywhere else in Gauteng and the selection is ever changing.
