Varietal split – 100% Chardonnay
Our Town Hall was built in 1935 in the popular gabled Cape Dutch revival style. Much like the character of our Franschhoek Cellar Our Town Hall Chardonnay, this historical building follows seamless lines and gentle curves to preserve the natural heritage and architecture of the village, yet still expresses itself boldly. The gable depicts Franschhoek’s heraldic crest showing a Huguenot, the mountains, an elephant, fruit and the indigenous Protea.
Our Town Hall Chardonnay gives off beautiful pure and bright pineapple and lemon and lime fruit purity and intensity on both nose and palate with a perky balancing acidity to the frisky finish making this a gracious and engaging wine even without oak.

Cold fermented in stainless steel and left completely unwooded to amplify the clean cut fruit on the nose and palate. Extended contact with the fine lees and monthly stirring add richness and dimension.
