Chardonnay vertical tasting

■ The third Avontuur Estate winter series of tutored tastings by winemaker Jan van Rooyen, pictured, will investigate the maturation potential of the Luna de Miel Chardonnay Reserve. With the 2017 vintage set to be released this winter, an in-depth look at this wine which shows off upfront nuances of orange peel, ginger and white peach, will allow exploration of the older vintages from Jan’s vinoteque. The tasting takes place on Saturday July 14.  Entry costs R130, which includes a welcome drink, the tutored tasting, a light meal and coffee.  Bookings are essential.
