OUR WINES

La Chataigne produces a boutique selection of white, red and rosé wines.  We began bottling our own wine in 2003, however, the farm has always grown grapes and has vineyards dating as far back as 1942. Our styles range from fresh and fruity to classic and elegant, always mindful of ultimate balance and accessibility to both pocket and palate.

Sauvignon Blanc 2017

100% Sauvignon Blanc


Using ripe bunches and leaving the wine on the lees for 6 months we have tried to make a more ‘old world’ style wine, keeping acids and fruit in check. A fresh zesty medium bodied wine with undertones of lime and kiwi fruit.

Fumé Blanc 2017 

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Fermented and aged for 10 months in old wood barrels has allowed this Sauvignon Blanc to develop into a beautifully rounded, balanced wine. It’s a big mouthfeel wine with light nuances of vanilla, butterscotch, almonds and peaches which peel off in creamy layers with a long and lingering finish.

Kastanje 2017 - Chenin Blanc

100% Chenin Blanc

Our low yielding old bush vine Chenin Blanc vineyard allows us to create this mouth-watering crispy fresh wine with a delicate burst of tropical fruits. You will find subtle layers of paw paw, pineapple, banana and papaya with a splash of citrus.

Marron 2013 

84% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon

This Merlot, with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, is fermented in wood and left in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels for 10 months. It is then bottled and stored at 18 degrees until sold. It’s a feminine, voluptuous, luscious plummy wine. An amphora of rhubarb, cherries, mulberries and plums with a dash of spice, cinnamon and cloves. A full, but gentle and harmonious, silky mouthfeel.

Rosé 2017

100% Merlot

Made from Merlot grapes picked for Rosé, and just a touch of skin contact, gives this wine its lovely onion skin colour. A rose petal nose is just the introduction before a burst of freshness hits the pallet. It's luscious, full, fresh, fruity and youthful.

Flagship Wine

Semillon 2014 

100% Semillon from bush vines planted in 1932

Our 87 year old dryland Semillon vineyard produces the most interesting of flavours. Fermented and matured in a combination of old and new barrels it was left on the lease for a year, with a process of bâtonnage – the weekly stirring of the lease – developing its creamy character. It has a big mouthfeel, nutty and with glycerine, lanolin and toasty vanilla. A real ‘winter’ wine enjoyed in front of the fireplace as the rain pelts down. It can still age some 3-4 years.
